Hong Kong activates "serious response level" for infectious diseases as Wuhan pneumonia outbreak escalates
The Department of Health has launched a new contingency plan and escalated the response level to "Serious" on the WuHan epidemic situation.
The Department expects that the demand for surgical masks by the general public will significantly increase. With the upcoming Chinese New Year holiday break, many mainland manufacturers will close for the long holiday. Corporate members who are local retailers and importers of surgical masks are reminded to ensure sufficient inventory is in place for the Hong Kong market especially during the holiday season!
