HK: Last minute dash to flower market on lunar new year's eve

Hongkong citizens made a last-minute dash to make purchases at Flower Market on Lunar New Year's Eve. The government has canceled Lunar New Year Fairs in various districts due to the fifth wave of Covid-19 outbreak this year. Flower Market in Prince Edward remains open, but crowd control measures are in force.

A flower shop owner surnamed Pang said business today is not particularly good as compared to previous years. The flowers also cost more than before due to the increase in transport costs.

Citizen Mrs. Leung said she spent HK$100 to buy flowers. She is used to buying flowers every year, and said the cancellation of Lunar New Year Fair at Victoria Park did not affect her much.
