So I am a British Citizen and currently live in Hong Kong and it has been such a surreal few months with the Virus.
I am absolutely shocked how intense the widespread the Virus is in the UK and Europe. We have had 150 (approx) cases over 2 months and have had stringent hygiene implemented, for instance cleaning hand every hour, the MTR(underground) is cleaned extensively, work places and cleaned every 3 hours and it seems to have worked.
During the initial outbreak and slow release of news people did self isolate but ultimately it seems to have done the business as a lot of people are now back at work and everything is open.
Here, almost all people wear masks, which is ironic as it is typically customary that you wear them when you are sick. But there is very little evidence/ no evidence supports that it actually works unless it is a particular type.
All I can say is that Hygiene, is so important- please wash your hand and do not touch your face. If you are unwell, do not interact and stay away from people.
Also, on the the news being reported stating that 8 million Brits will be in hospital, this is just such sensational nonsense. 135,000 cases and almost 4,000 dead. Do not buy into this sensationalism, stay strong and shop sensibly. Corona doesn't give you the shits
