Michael Yon, Hong Kong reporter, in re: Trying to get two containers of masks, 34,000 boxes, and can't get them.  Masks, food, toilet paper, all seem to be sold out.  . . .  Rugby Sevens tournament, the annual social event, has been cancelled, which is major. Schools closed, parents need to be at home for child care.  People growing furious; this may explode when it’s over, as they see the government being only a proxy for Beijing, not for the benefit of the citizenry.  Thailand’s borders are open, Chinese people streaming in; dangerous.
