welcome to. it's good to have you with us today we focus on hong kong as we continue with our coverage of the spread of the by. the chinese territory has so far more than 40 cases but for the population of 8000000 backed together in dense residential housing fears are growing that the number of infections will rise . 100 residents. for the. fear of a repeat of the epidemic of 2003 but hong kong's death toll was nearly the same. as
on the chinese mainland. the territories leader. has austin novus public to come together to fight the virus but let me just make this clear again in order to fight this virus hong kong needs the full cooperation and active participation of every member of society this is a time for social cohesion this is a time for every one of us to display civic responsibility that call for responsibility going out not just to a novice public but also a divided one for months the city had been tearing itself apart over a week the pro-democracy protests but the government's alleged inept handling of the coronavirus crisis has added another layer of distrust to an already frayed relationship with the public. some pill has more. the face mask an emblem of hong kong's lurch from one crisis to another was an icon
of the pro-democracy demonstrations now it offers protection against a new coronavirus with the street protests now largely at an end hong kong's focus has shifted. where images of violent street battles once covered these walls now it's the battle against the virus that dominates with one common thread underpinning boasts distrust of the government and its chief executive carrie lamb the priest is on the wall it may have changed it taking a look around it is clear that the anger which fueled a lot of the protests can't be papered over quite as easily. as the death toll in china mounts many of slammed hong kong for keeping its borders open. for this to be a shortage of face mosques and towns on the ties that have sparked panic buying and fear. one prominent voice than amongst the anger is hong kong's vast community of pro-democracy activists. during the protests campaign is simon loud common qualm
use the space to make props for the demonstrations. when the virus hits they swapped helmets by hand sanitizer using the network to source the donations and ingredients filling in they say where authorities have failed. proof that while they may have pushed tools on the protests the movement is just as focused as ever i'm very confident. because this government will upset all people not just a political belief but also all people in the community and all of their supporters of this couple should but now you can see it quiet. but there are very angry with simon in common altruism hands with police departments is that they believe that as the virus spreads so it will enter government sense means and it's not they hope to harness to push for democratic change off guard that was the problem but
there's a strong movement why i have every confidence it's because the 3 of you up the system people's understanding from all walks of life but why respect from why so all the features and inferior. the cost of the system. to activists like simon has always been clear that battle would not be $4.00 to $1.00 with street protests alone the pro-democracy campaigns proven it can adapt and it's actions like this that could become the new face of the movement is angry of the government's handling of the virus which discontent across the political spectrum. meanwhile china has sacked top officials in a province for their failure to check the spread of the corona virus much earlier on in what way province is the epicenter of the global outbreak that has so far recorded more than 43000 cases worldwide health authorities there have been lost in
