It's not any "pandemic" that's causing this. It's the ignorant humans who actually believe there's a pandemic and walk around with diaper muzzles on their face.

Mr. S

Since the coronavirus outbreak started in the early days of 2020, a growing number of surgical masks are being worn and then immediately thrown away by people trying to avoid catching the deadly infection. But environmentalists say improperly discarded masks are now piling up in the general waste stream and increasingly turning up in waters surrounding the city. They warn that as the Covid-19 epidemic drags, masks will become increasingly common in marine environments including on Hong Kong beaches.

If you lived in Hong Kong during any outbreaks, you know those litterers are not Hong Kongers.

Don't make masks on ground a thing when the people already are accustomed to nothing caring about other everyday trash being on ground... Address the core problem first

I would think they could be washed and reused.

John Boy

irfan ferdian sani

Ahhh I see humanity is the real pandemic

Ten o'Pentacles

Education on personal social responsibility should start from early age, through parenting, formal education, and government communications. I still remember the song I heard on TV about littering when I was young. That was many years ago in HK.
When I was in Japan, I was so amazed to see a bunch of kids (no more than 10 yrs old) armoured with masks and gloves helped with picking up garbage off the street with their teacher guiding along the way. There wasn't much to pick up as we all know how clean Japan is, but the education is there.

coonus1

Yup I've seen em on the side of the street here so it's the new plastic water bottle

Kushagar Sudan

Just wipe our civilization Corona !

kelletman

Maybe using and hair dryer or hot air fan heater to dry hands at home after washing instead of a towel could help stop the spread of Corona - heat kills Covid 19, no contamination from using the towel - keep safe HK.

roadkill serna

What about biodegrable face masks?

BLOODYMONKEY

Could they not use reusable ones

Hagendis

Covid 19 : guess time to mutate dear Hongkong people..?

Excuse me!? I believe they prefer the term “Chinese Caucasian Dolphins.” Stop seeing colors.

SomeRandomAsianGurl

The corona virus is another reason we need to stop littering and start making recycleable masks or reusable ones

aditya kurnia

Chinese are the main problem in this world

Moist Peanut

Listen, at the moment we got more important things to worry about than the environment. Once this is done we can go back go being green.

That's really sad...to see human beings littering like that...?

Wash them by hand, it works. One time use generic masks, the blue ones, they can be washed and reused.

Karen Xian

Wear a cloth mask! It’s worth it. Once you finish this video you’ll really think about the impact.

No lessons learned with the Coronavirus. People are still polluting the environment even after experiencing this new virus. What a stupidity. Its a nature revanche.

Matt

This is why humanity will cause humans to go extinct

Phillip Goodwin

Just awful

I am SH00keth.

When our country first got cases of the coronavirus everyone started using masks, which are great if they throw it properly, but my classmates usually just dispose their masks in my classroom at dispersal and sometimes i see disposed masks in my school field. Its disgusting and really unhygenic.

Where AOC, gerta thumberg at??

entitlement and selfish

清新人生

This is human kind. Even before the corona virus get under control, people start to torture the nature again. Seems like human kind need more lessons to learn how to respect Mother Nature.

May Lyn Arcilla

We all deserve everything that is happening now, we all made bad mistakes especially ruining our environment. This is what payback means. No need to point fingers everyone on earth made mistakes.

I just hope we get through with this.

Shlomo Shekelstein

"But we banned plastic straws!"

narutaa

Why are they not afraid that the virus might mutate and affect the sea creature. Why not bring a bag and throw it there temporarily and disposed it properly after use.

Or just use a reusable mask
