In face of an epidemic, many hospitals and essential tasks were understaffed. According to RTHK, the Home Affairs Bureau pressed the boy scouts’ volunteers to quarantine tasks in Sai Kung Outdoor Recreation Centre and Tso Kung Tam Outdoor Recreation Centre.
The Home Affairs Bureau, upon request of the Stand News, confirmed that the action, saying the involvement is voluntary, “fighting against novel coronavirus under the same goal.”
A boy scouts leader told RTHK that although the involvement is voluntary, he questioned whether they would be assigned sufficient medical supplies, especially when even the Hospital Authority were left with one-month’s supply of surgical masks.
He further raised concerns about the fact that although they have basic first aid experience, they were not trained for more difficult tasks.
At the same time, the CCP recruited a large number of young medical students from all over China to Hubei Province, which is the coronavirus epidemic center. Let us bless these young people.
