Hong Kongers flock to ‘Instagram Pier’ despite pandemic | AFP

At a public pier on Hong Kong Island’s western edge, dubbed “Instagram Pier” for its camera-ready spots, individuals from all walks of life gather to sit back, relax and enjoy the ocean breeze. Young people, families, and the elderly bring the public space — officially a cargo pier — to life with all kinds of outdoor activities as Hong Kong records single digit increases in cases of the coronavirus, despite a growing number worldwide from the pandemic. The city, despite its early onset of COVID-19 cases, has been relatively successful in containing the outbreak, recording just over 1,000 infections to date. Social distancing measures and public space closures are in force, but Hong Kong has so far avoided a major lockdown that many major cities around the world are going through.
