Many are wondering how they can stay healthy during the weeks — and possibly months — of self-isolation that lie ahead.
Hong Kongers, who live in some of the world’s smallest apartments, say it can be done.
“One hundred percent you can still stay fit,” explained Handford, a 33-year-old Canadian mother of one who has lived in Hong Kong the last six years.
“It’s just about being creative.”
The average living space for each Hong Kong resident is just 170 square feet (16 square meters), one of the lowest in the world.
“Trust me, if we can exercise here, you can do it anywhere,” Handford said.
