A group of mourners gathered to hold a vigil in Hong Kong on Friday, dedicated to the recently deceased Doctor and coronavirus whistleblower, Li Wenliang, who was one of the first persons to raise the alarm of a SARS-like virus affecting people in Wuhan.
Mourners wearing masks gathered next to a memorial set with Doctor Li Wengliang's pictures can be seen in footage filmed at the Chinese Special... Еще Administrative Region. Wreaths of flowers alongside written messages can also be spotted.
The 34-year-old Ophthalmologist Li Wenliang was working at Wuhan Central Hospital at the time he reported patients suffering from a SARS-like virus infection, and is believed to have contracted the coronavirus whilst tending to them before dying last Thursday.
The Coronavirus outbreak has been declared a global health emergency by the World Health Organization (WHO). Chinese health officials said that the death toll has reached 630, with more than 31,000 infected in China alone.
