Wuhan's new type of coronary pneumonia virus hit Hong Kong, wearing masks throughout the city. When the Dean of the University of Hong Kong Medical School, Leung Cheuk-wai, attended a government press conference yesterday (25th), he did not wear a mask like a group of government officials. He explained that he was worried that wearing a mask "cannot talk to others",
However, when the Financial Secretary, Chen Maobo, answered a reporter ’s question after attending a radio program this morning (26th), wearing a mask throughout the process did not seem to affect his ability to speak.

Chen Maobo did not wear a mask while attending a commercial program this morning. However, after the show ended, he responded to media questions and put on a mask throughout the process. The answer was quite smooth. He pointed out that because it is necessary to go in and out of public places, to get in close contact with reporters, and for public health and safety, it is considered that wearing a mask is good for everyone.
Later, a reporter asked in English whether he was wearing a mask because he was unwell. Chen Maobo said that he was in good health, thanked for his concern, and emphasized that wearing a mask is a precautionary measure to ensure public health and safety. The government also recommends wearing a mask when there are many people.
Chen Hanyi, the director of the Department of Health, said earlier that unless there are symptoms, she does not need to wear a mask in social occasions, and some have questioned whether it is related to the government's "Malaysia Masking Law" legislation. Chief Executive Lin Zheng Yue'e retorted yesterday, saying that Chen Hanyi's profession should not be questioned. "I don't believe she will be far away. You suspect that I have no reason to doubt that she is not fair."
