SARS Blog — Chatty opinionated resident of Hong Kong posting about the SARS situation there.
“For the first time since SARS came onto the scene, I have actually stood in a long queue of people. It was an experience I thought I might not have for some time.
I had to go to the transport department and renew the license for the car. The office was absolutely packed with people getting this done before the Easter holiday began.
The funny bit was about half way through the queue, with 50 odd people in front and behind me, in a snake line, so I was right in the middle. I coughed (been smoking too much) and suddenly I had a lot of space all around me.
People really are a little paranoid.”
