The Association of Hong Kong Nursing Staff has announced a demonstration on Sunday, January 20, to denounce a shortage of nurses amid an influenza outbreak. Nurses have reportedly been required to work overtime hours due to the recent influx of patients ill with the flu. Demonstrators are expected to rally outside the local government office in Admiralty district. A heightened security presence and localized transportation disruptions are expected near all demonstration sites. Further related protests are possible in the coming days. Increased wait times are to be anticipated at hospitals and health clinics over the near term.
Individuals in Hong Kong are advised to avoid all demonstrations as a precaution, expect increased wait times at hospitals and health clinics, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
