Uploaded by on May 4, 2020


Hong Kong has been praised for its handling of the coronavirus crisis.

It has reported no local case for two weeks and life is returning to normalcy gradually and cautiously in one of the world’s densest cities.

Today, civil servants are returning to the offices after weeks of working from home.

BBC reports say that the government is also set to relax some social-distancing measures, and gyms and cinemas might be allowed to reopen this week.

No lockdown has been put in place in the city of seven million, but it has become compulsory for restaurants to check customers’ temperature before allowing them in and provide hand sanitisers,while most staff wears masks and gloves to serve customers.

But health authorities have warned against complacency because over the weekend, crowds were seen on beaches and in shopping malls as residents appear to be tired of staying home for months.
