In 2003, severe acute respiratory syndrome (Sars) killed 300 people in Hong Kong, causing deep psychological scars for many city residents. Now 17 years later, those Hongkongers are recalling the lessons learned from Sars as they deal with the Covid-19 pandemic. Those lessons are reflected in the policies being introduced by local authorities, and in the way ordinary people in the city are working to maintain personal hygiene.

in HK everyone has a mask, that's why they don't have as a big problem, while here in the States, they say masks don't help, sad.

A sense of solidarity and common respect is a critical part of eliciting the cooperation we need to survive such threats together. Self-quarantines with the proper support–check-ins by trained neighborhood brigades, food supply trucks going door-to-door, work release and unemployment insurance–can elicit that kind of cooperation, that we are all in this together.

(Sarcastically) By allowing the HK airport remain fully open to those from Beijing and Shanghai airport, because all these airports remain fully opened during Wuhan Lockdown allowing people enough time for neighboring province to escape and infected the world with it.

Seriously look it up, for the past 3 months during the height of this outbreak within China *these international airports NEVER controlled or restrict any outgoing passengers*, but only control incoming passengers recently (e.g. 14d Isolation, travel restriction or ban from specific country). How curious?

And now China Can claim how the world should be more like China, by sending out viruses across the world in the first place.

Such measures should be implemented in the Philippines. Not just to quarantine people at home and spend millions to feed the people, which is a short term solution.

1. It it's alopathic treatment which kills already weak patients not covid19 itself.
98% infected are recovered.
2. Fear lowers immunity
3.Fear kills interviews of CURED patients to erase the FEAR amongst world. Otherwise irresponsible media will collapse everything.

Us westerners seem to be missing the point. Masks don't protect you from others. They protect others form you. Can't anybody do dot to dots these There's a reason Asian countries are handling this better than us
