  • Hong Kong’s so-called anti-epidemic taxi drivers, recruited to ferry Covid-19 patients to and from clinics, received more than 300 bookings within 20 minutes of the service’s launch on Friday, though some cabbies complained they were already receiving “strange” looks and discriminatory treatment.
  • The anti-epidemic taxi fleet, identified as such by labels on the vehicles’ exteriors, swung into action on Friday morning to provide exclusive service for coronavirus patients from 9am to 6pm.
