Be My Guest | Before HK bans overseas travel, why do you still fly? 香港封關前夕,你哋仲飛 ??

As Coronavirus continues to spread across the globe, the rapid growth of confirmed cases in Europe is particularly concerning. The Hong Kong Chief Executive, Carrie Lam, held a press conference this afternoon (March 23) to announce the strengthening of anti-epidemic measures in Hong Kong, including a 14-day ban from 0:00 on Wednesday (March 25) that all non-Hong Kong residents arriving in Hong Kong by air from overseas will not be allowed to enter Hong Kong.

Prior to this new restriction, all overseas arrivals in Hong Kong, except those from Macau and Taiwan, would be subject to mandatory quarantine for 14 days upon arrival at Hong Kong Airport since midnight on March 18. But there are still many people having questions about this mandatory quarantine.

Besides, we found that at this particular time, a small number of people still chose to fly back to HK or head overseas. Plus, from our previous street interview, "Why don't you wear a mask," it is not difficult to see that due to cultural differences, some Western people and people from the East have a huge difference in their concepts and measures of fighting this epidemic.

So, on Day-1 of mandatory quarantine (March 19), our Italian guests Fabrizio and Stefano went to Hong Kong International Airport with full protective gear. Meanwhile, we brought a lot of protective supplies. On the one hand, we wanted to give a hand to someone in need. On the other hand, we wanted to find out what should be paid attention to after landing. Fabrizio was shocked at the scene, "I never saw in my life the airport. It was so empty.”

Finally, we would like to appeal to everyone that, at this particular moment, the whole world must work together to fight against the pandemic, starting with each individual, taking effective protection measures, and maintaining a certain social distance with others. And if anyone needs help, please give them a hand as much as possible. We believe that if you stay healthy and hang in there for a little longer, victory will soon be ours.

新冠肺炎繼續席捲全球,其中歐洲疫情的迅速增長尤其引人注目。特首林鄭月娥今日(23日)下午召開記者會,宣佈加強本港防疫措施,其中由週三(25日)零時零分起為期14天,所有非本港居民從海外國家乘飛機抵港,將不準入境。

此前3月18日午夜起,除了澳門及臺灣,所有海外抵港人士,從香港機場入境後都要接受14天強制家居檢疫。但也有不少人對這項強制隔離措施到底該如何實施,存在不少疑問。

我們發現,在此非常時期,仍然有少部分人選擇坐飛機回來,又或出境。加上從此前的街訪《送口罩給老外,他們會戴嗎?》不難看出,因文化差異,部分西方人與東方人在抗擊疫情的觀念和方式也有較大差別。

封關前夕, 我們和意大利嘉賓Fabrizio和Stefano全副武裝,向香港機場出發,並帶著不少防護補給,一來希望可以幫到有需要的人,二來也想搞清楚已入境或未來入境人士應須知的重要事項。

看著一片寂靜,空空如也的機場大廳,Fabrizio感歎道「我這輩子第一次見到這麼空的機場!」最後,我們想呼籲大家,在非常時期,全世界都要齊心協力抗疫,從個人做起,做好有效的防護,並暫時和他人保持一定的社交距離。而如果身邊有人需要幫助時,也請盡可能伸出援手。我們相信,再堅持一會,勝利就在眼前了。
