    448 patients in treatment.

    Govt reviewing stringent measures and legislative procedures will take time.

    Wong chuk hang party - people have been contacted. No significant news.

    Specific locations will not be disclosed (I assume related to people asking which places in LKF).

    LKF case - some confirmed cases are from the same band. And wait staff. Quite a few numbers mentioned. 386, 387..

    1 media worker (377..rumored to be NowTV)

    Lan Kwai Fong Band Cluster - 5-6 people in band - Center stage, insomnia and dusk to dawn.

    Wong Chuk Hang Cluster - quite a sizeable crowd. Organizer contacting guests.

    LKF - do they wear masks while playing music and sanitize their instruments. African ethnicity and do not wear a mask(!).

    What lock down?!? Will not be in the health conf.

    Everyone asking about LKF and ignoring the wedding or the Wong chuk hang party.

    Stop not just socializing with alcohol - stop socializing...

    Higher number of cases bases around families...

    Samples been collected from many LKF locations. Through cleaning done. May have gone after clean up..

    New negative pressure wards - being activated. General wards being converted. 400(? Additional beds.

    Mother f.. One more question about wearing masks while performing music.

    43 Pottinger Street.. Lounge Coca something... Few of them know each other and some don't. Happen to be in the same space.. Unsure what happened.

    Waiter infected in LKF - worked at Insomnia

    Discharged patients - 63 have been reexamined.

    Doing lung function tests - not too be done too early (meaningless if done early - need to be given some time to heal). Need to give them few months.

    10 children confirmed cases.. Symptoms are more moderate and might now need strong anti virals.

    Oh my, expect the government not to follow up on this request. Seems the non-resident ban doesn't apply to mainlanders:

    Health officials said five members of a band which had recently been playing in the entertainment district in Central are among the city's 30 new Covid-19 patients.
    Nineteen of the other new patients had been out of Hong Kong recently, including a man who went to Macau for some gambling, a tour guide who led a group of 20 people to Spain and Turkey, two students, and a Cathay Pacific flight attendant.

    Apparently all McDonald's locations will be closed for dine in after 18:00 starting from tomorrow until April 7th.

    I wonder where all the McSleepers will go during the night

    McDonalds in HK will close at 6pm due to this virus outbreak.

    This news shouldn’t matter much to us.....

    However, heartbreakingly hundreds of homeless individuals rely on this fast food restaurant for a safe shelter each and every night in Hong Kong!

    Recently counted, 250 homeless individuals sleep in McD’s in the district of West Kowloon alone!!

    This is terrifying! And also infuriating that this government has people in such serious need left with no safe options for shelter.

    This government does have shelters with hundreds and hundreds of beds which are also closed tonight.

    The beds are put away and the doors are locked. And this isn’t because of the virus! This is because it’s not cold enough or hot enough for the government to care.

    This is a really sad and challenging time for so many. We are all facing big challenges I’m sure. But it especially breaks me thinking about those homeless seniors and individuals with serious mental illness who won’t know where to go tonight

    Take care everyone ❤️

    Used to volunteer for Impact HK ( before the months long protests started and since,then haven't had a "chance" to go). Met a lot of homeless people and the sight of elderly ones particularly was a heartbreaking one - they would struggle to (stand up) receive food we were distributing , a photo or two of their "family" members could be seen by the side of their improvised bed. I wonder how those people are doing now.

    I'm sure Impact HK (and other charity organizations) has already worked out plans to deliver masks and other basic necessities to them but what about "social distancing?" They are already kind of "segregated" from society, aren't they? So, what kind of social distancing would they have to follow? Stay six feet away from another homeless and become even more isolated and segregated ? Break down their already broken down spirits by doing so?

    I should think the plight of poor people remains more or less similar to that of our "forefathers" (from) a hundred years ago.
