The government raided Tsim Sha Tsui, Yuen Long, Hung Hom and Yau Ma Tei for compulsory testing last night (1st).Among them, about 30 employees and customers were forced to stay overnight in a hairdressing salon in Jinluang Building, Tsim Sha Tsui. Some trapped citizens called the radio to complain this morning (2nd). Dozens of strangers besieged the hairdressing salon as a "zombie" inside the shop. People have to take turns to sleep in the hair cutting chairs, and some sleep on the ground, which is quite "difficult". After this epidemic, they will avoid going out after 7 pm.
Yau Tsim Mong District Councillor He Cheuk-hsuan pointed out that Jinluang Building is a commercial and residential building, which causes inconvenience to non-residents. He believes that the government should review its actions to allow non-residents to leave after testing.Another district councillor, Chen Ka-lang, described the government as "being very careful and stubbornly doing things", hoping that it can deal with non-residents at its discretion.

Hair salon customers: some customers failed to try to "break the gate"
Ms. Li, who was trapped in the hair salon of Jinluang Building yesterday, told the commercial channel program "Starting on a Sunny Day" that she lived in Tsing Yi and visited the hairstylist she knew for more than ten years at around 6:40 in the evening. I was planning to cut and dye my hair to celebrate the Year of the Ox. During the unexpected period, someone suddenly noticed that there were a large number of police officers downstairs. It was learned that after being blocked, some people tried to "broke the gate" in hair salon clothes but were unsuccessful.
Ms. Li said bluntly that she didn't consider that the district would be enclosed in advance. "Generally, it is thought that mandatory testing is only blocked because the raid has been delayed."

Said that he would avoid going out after 7pm from now on
Ms. Li continued to point out that she was tested at 9 p.m., and at 1 a.m., people in the store began to complain, "At two o'clock in the morning, the government began to be under siege. It feels like a zombie film. Many people came out to surround you. Go, be with people who don’t know about the class.” She said with a smile, the anti-epidemic personnel sent out the first one. After being reported, they were given soup and cup noodles. They had to line up in the hairdressing salon for hot water. “Come out at the window, the police look like Watch the horse show."
She said that people in the store took turns sleeping in the hair-cutting chairs, and some were too tired and slept on the ground, but they had difficulty resting, were hungry, and felt mentally stressed. They did not receive a text message from 4 to 5 in the morning and felt quite "Difficult to endure."She said, "This time we need to eat food." She still has to go to work today. She believes that haircutting guests are not residents of the building, and the lockdown will not help the epidemic. Even though the inspectors are caring and polite, they feel a lot of pressure during the trap. From now on, they will avoid going out after 7pm to avoid sudden enclosures.
District Councillor: Consider allowing non-residents to go home after testing
Yau Tsim Mong District Councillor He Cheuk-hsuan said that the closure of the building this time is smooth, but the situation is different. There are commercial and residential buildings in the closure zone. Among them, Jinluang Building has restaurants, hair salons, hotels, and subdivided rooms. And the inconvenience caused by customers, "Dozens of people are trapped in hair salons are not good for the epidemic." They believe that the government should review and allow non-residents who have completed testing to go home first.He also pointed out that yesterday he asked about the reason for the closure of the Jinluang Building. The other party said that it was due to a confirmed diagnosis, plus many hotels and a large floating population.
District Councillor Tan Ka-lang pointed out that a person trapped in Jinluang Building was allowed to pay for parking to relatives and friends at the gate last night. He believed that the operation was disrupting non-residents in the area and questioned that the government was not thorough enough. ".
