Crowds of people queued to send face masks and medical supplies to their friends and relatives abroad in a DHL Store in the district of Wan Chai, Hong Kong on Tuesday, as Europe has become the new epicentre of the coronavirus epidemic.
«I am sending some masks and a bottle of baby-cleaning-gel to my friends in France,» said Jane Lu, a customer. «Because they are living in Paris, which was... Еще already kind of closed, and I think they don’t usually wear masks, and you need the doctor’s prescription. So I don’t think they will need masks every day, but they asked me to buy some, just for some saving,» she said.
Joanna Cheng was also sending masks to her relatives in Canada, as they did not have any. «I think in Hong Kong you buy the mask as far as you wish to pay a little higher price,» said Jane Lu.
Hong Kong remains one of the less affected areas, with a total number of 155 confirmed cases so far.
