HONK KONG BANS FACE MASKS

Written by on October 4, 2019

Hong Kong chief executive Carrie Lam has used a colonial-
era emergency law to ban face masks after months of angry
protests.
The measure was announced today following widespread
violence on 1 October, the 70th anniversary of Communist Party
rule in China.
Ms Lam said the violence is destroying the city and authorities
could not just leave the situation to get worse and worse."
The ban comes into effect on Saturday.
But observers say the regulation will be hard to enforce and
hugely controversial.
