Wait until the numbers come right down (in any given place) and all the excuses come out as to why the current measures must absolutley not be lifted/Infact should be tightened even more.

Not ‘airborne’ as such. From what I have read it is carried in droplets exhaled through sneezing and coughing. Maybe heavy breathing (jogging for example) or loud talking (quite a common feature from locals and Americans!) The largest droplets will fall, smaller May hang in the air for a longer time.

yes ‘stay at home’ is the thing in the UK but not in Hong Kong, My wife is required by her employer to go in to work everyday even though she could easily do the same work remotely. The journey to work on a crowded bus and MTR is the dangerous bit.
We are happy to go for a hike in the hills and if I see someone coming my way I make sure I give a much space between us as possible.
The rest of the time wear masks, distance, wash hands after every journey or public place where we might have touched something, be hyper careful.
yes stay at home is probably the safest option but not always possible or desirable.
You are a very sad person.
