Nowadays, daily life is heavily affected by a novel coronavirus. Individuals and institutions are taking precautions to prevent the outbreak. As the outbreak looms over Hong Kong, the city is trying to get its much-needed protection wears, yet as the demand increases, getting what is needed becomes even harder.
According to University of Hong Kong microbiologist Dr Ho Pak-leung, the city approximately would need 300 million masks monthly.
As of February 5th,
15 private clinics closed due to lack of masks, many clinics are voicing their concerns about tight mask supply.
10,000 people queued up just to buy two boxes of masks on January 29th.
As the outbreak continues to spread, the need for masks will continue to increase too, especially for the people who are more vulnerable to the disease and people who come to close contact with the virus more often than others like doctors and cleaning workers.
As Anatolia Cultural and Dialog Center (ACDC), we want to help to alleviate the burden on vulnerable people and communities. Please help us to support people in need.
