Coronavirus has caused about a million cases and over 4,600 deaths in Hong Kong. On Wednesday, workers wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) loaded the corpses of the victims into chilled shipping containers. Workers in full PPE gear placed remains wrapped in black tarp from a truck into rows of shipping containers outside Fu Shan Public Mortuary on Wednesday. Researchers think that the infection rate in Hong Kong is far higher than official numbers, with half of the city’s 7.4 million people infected. This week, more than 3,000 new instances have been reported in mainland China, as Beijing fights to retain its zero-Covid policy.
