Hong Kong's Fifth Wave
February 24, 2022
COVID-19 is a pandemic that has disproportionately impacts those most vulnerable. This is a sad fact that has become increasingly more apparent as Hong Kong battles its fifth wave. Long queues outside hospitals and testing centers, domestic workers being unfairly fired, and rising case counts due to a more transmissible variant; the situation is less than ideal to put it mildly. Government and NGOs are working hard to come up with a tranche of initiatives to help assist those in need.

Urban. Sleek. Metropolitan. These are the words that often come to mind whenever we think of Hong Kong. But that is only one of this city’s many faces. Hong Kong is also home to picturesque landscapes, beautiful beaches, and unbridled nature to those willing to seek them out. Admittedly, despite my years here, this was a side of Hong Kong that I’ve only recently been acquainted with. It was introduced to me by my fellow Shapers from the Global Shapers Community Hong Kong hub .
