Virus chaos pushes more expats to join Hong Kong exodus
France24 says For the last eight years Mathilde and her family have called Hong Kong home, but as the coronavirus tears through the city they are joining an exodus of foreign workers looking for an escape route.
“We are leaving and we will come back to empty our house whenever that is possible,” she told AFP, declining to give her surname and nationality. “All our close friends are leaving.”
For Mathilde it was the risk of being separated from her three Hong Kong-born children that was the final straw after two years of tough “zero-Covid” restrictions.
“We want to get our children out of here above all,” she said.
