China’s France envoy raps striking HK medical workers

CHINA’S ambassador to France yesterday slammed as “shameful” the decision by Hong Kong medical workers to strike, accusing them of putting lives at risk in the midst of a deadly coronavirus outbreak.

Hundreds of medical staff walked off the job on Monday, demanding that the semi-autonomous territory completely seal its border with mainland China to stop the spread of the virus, which has claimed at least 560 lives as of today.
