    Seen on social media ... supposedly spotted outside a pharmacy in Tsuen Wan that ordered a shipping container full of toilet paper from mainland China and ran out of space to store it all. So they put it into the street, and people are now calling it a "toilet paper wall". But not many buying this toilet paper ...

    Is it safe to eat raw fruits and veggies? I only read you're supposed to cook meat and eggs properly.

    These masks are for their own use. Not for general distribution...

    Makes sense doesn't it? I don't see why the government should provide everyone with masks, their usefulness is dubious at best. They just have to make sure their supply is enough for the public hospitals.

    Public health considerations? Given that masks stop water droplets and this research from Shanghai came in today. Washing your hands won't stop you from inhaling droplets from someone shouting on their phone on the MTR.

    Well, if you are afraid of catching the virus on the MTR, you can always stay at home instead. Next people are demanding the government ensure an ample supply of toilet paper.

    One potentially stops the disease from spreading, the other one not so much. Apples vs oranges very much?

    Also, some people can't just WFH like you. Think contracted cleaners and such...

    The tiny supermarket nearby home keeps restocking various tissues twice everyday but people keep emptying the shelves within an hour. So yesterday I needed to queue up there to buy toilet and kitchen tissues. Let's see how long people can continue stocking up tissue papers in their homes.

    These people are crazy -
