With the continuous outbreak of the new crown epidemic in Hong Kong, the government has sealed off areas in Jordan and delineated restricted areas for the first time in history. Residents have to stay at home and wait for strong testing.

Reporters from "Hong Kong 01" and more than a dozen other media stayed behind in the restricted area to cover the situation and directly attack the situation in the area.

Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor, in the first sunset zone of the closed zone, pointed out that the approach is not perfect and the government will provide all feasible support.

The reporter experienced it personally and found that some sub-divided households were unable to cook, and the elderly living alone needed to deliver meals, but most of the supplies they provided were food to be cooked.

Some elders reported to district councilors that hot food was only available for 12 hours, and some people never knew how to get supplies, and there was no milk powder for children.

As for how the reporter interviewed during these 44 hours?

It is a window of the room and the roof of the hotel.

Starting at 4 a.m. on January 23, parts of Jordan’s affected areas were closed for testing, ranging from east to Wusong Street, south to Nanjing Street, west to Paotai Street, and north to Gansu Street for 48 hours.

Many households in the district cannot cook food

The epidemic situation around Temple Street in Jordan has been worsening. The government spent two days from the tenement building at No. 20 to 26 Reclamation Street until it decided to evacuate.

The news of Jordan’s closure began on Friday, and more and more versions were circulated. In an atmosphere of anxiety, someone decided to leave overnight.

The closed area finally arrived at 4 a.m. on the 23rd, representing the 44-hour quarantine of the entire area officially began, but the police officers who helped the closed area were unable to answer the question of how to arrange food and sampling.

After the reporter waited for 9 hours, he was finally able to accept sampling, and then obtained a food package, but without any cooking utensils, it was useless.

In fact, the experience of the reporters is not uncommon, because there are many households in the restricted area, and even caged homes, they are unable to cook, and as a result, some residents have failed to find the Civil Affairs Department and eat white bread for 44 hours to satisfy their hunger.

The hotline is difficult to reach the young and old for food and melancholy

Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor, in the first sunset zone of the closed zone, pointed out that the approach is not perfect and the government will provide all feasible support.

The government’s "feasible support" is the three hotlines. The reporter tried 20 consecutive calls before someone answered it. The reply was even "Do you own the Yau Tsim Mong DO (Commissioner of Home Affairs)".

When a volunteer from the Civil Affairs Department delivered meals to reporters, they also said helplessly: "Not enough people."

Yau Tsim Mong District Councillor Ho Fu-wing, who has been in contact with reporters, revealed that minority households with babies asked for milk powder or fresh milk from the Civil Affairs Department, but they were still unable to provide them at 5 pm on the 24th.

In addition to the large number of households and ethnicities in Jordan, there are also many elderly people in the district. Some elderly people want to have hot food, but they waited 24 hours before making arrangements.

At the same time, the restricted area is divided into four parts, and then guarded by four disciplined forces, but the methods are different, and there seems to be no communication, which gives people the feeling of changing orders and chaotic news.

Carrie Lam heard a question from a reporter

As reporters also had to ban their feet, they could not step out of the hotel.

Interviews must rely on a window in the hotel room. Fortunately, the windows of reporters and photographers are facing Shanghai Street. It is a "dream position" because it is clearly visible whether it is the chief executive or other directors and directors visiting the district. Other reporters will take turns. Lined up to the window to shoot.

The reporter shouted questions from the window when Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor was visiting the district. The result was that she successfully attracted her to look up and took the picture up to this moment.

The rooftop is the base where photographers will be stationed for two days, because many residents' every move can be seen from high positions.

In the past two days, many banned residents waved to the photographers, as if they were long-known friends, and there were also ethnic minorities cooking in the house shouting "we have curry, come over" through the window. Give a little warmth under the epidemic.

The closure of the area due to the epidemic this time is the first time in Hong Kong history. It has been reported that the fruit bar or Sham Shui Po may become the target of the next closure.
