(English version only)
During the COVID-19 pandemic, “mask on” and “wash hands” are doppelgangers of which we have grown weary but we cannot get rid. Our mingled feelings about this protective duo will continue to walk us through the hard autumn and long winter. Although many of us are remained fixated on the disputes over the US presidential election, or still in the midst of the prickly divide between “yellow” and “blue” in this city, the novel coronavirus is playing as our archenemy here and now. It has brought pain, loss and frustration across the whole world, and it costs hundreds of thousands of lives while many more have been left hospitalised. We are at war with it, not with our opposites favouring Biden or Trump, nor the people who uphold different political ideology from ours.
