【明報專訊】THE government has announced a new round of measures against the outbreak of novel coronavirus. All people entering Hong Kong from the mainland — Hong Kong residents included — must be under quarantine for 14 days. A local expert says that the measure is equivalent to a full closure of the border. However, he is still worried about the three-day vacuum. A trade union of front-line healthcare workers is determined to remain on strike, while the restlessness in society has yet to ease. Some people stay up all night in queues waiting to buy face masks, while others scramble for food and toilet paper in supermarkets.
