Opinion | Coronavirus threatens Hong Kong’s very future if it cannot protect livelihoods along with lives

Compared to the US, Britain and Singapore, Hong Kong’s stimulus package is relatively small. The government must do more to protects jobs. Hong Kong faces a deeper downturn than other cities, having already been battered by months of protests.
