And we tell our parents and grandparents to wear the mask. “We wouldn’t say ‘let’s take the mask off because I can’t breathe right’, because we know this virus is there.” Chinese people were also more likely to report their neighbours for breaking the rules, he said - adding that he had reported a neighbour for violating lockdown.
