UK: Restaurants in Chinatown Suffer Downturn Amid Fears of Coronavirus

Business owners and locals of London’s Chinatown deplored the decline in customers amid fears of coronavirus, on Wednesday.

Footage shows unusually quiet streets.

“As you can see this street is getting quieter than before, just because of the virus, but actually I don’t think that the situation is that severe but people worry,” said Ocean, a local business operator.

“The coronavirus actually does affect our business quite badly,” said a shop owner, while another one complained that “the restaurants are completely empty.”

The coronavirus outbreak has been declared a global health emergency by the World Health Organisation (WHO).

Close to 500 hundred have died and more than 24,000 people have been infected with the respiratory disease which originated in the Wuhan city in China late December.
