The Covid-19 epidemic seems to be sweeping across the world. Big outbreaks now in Iran, Italy and South Korea. We have a lot fo South Korean students of course so that will need managing as they return to Hong Kong (if they return). Cases in mainland China seem to have peaked and slowly things are getting back to normal. One unexpected impact has been the work at SWIMS which is now held up for lack of permits (Government Offices shut in Hong Kong) and materials (fabrication companies shut in mainland China).
