Just in: 100 musicians are locked down after one tests positivemain
The entire Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra has been sent locked down after a woodwind player tested positive for COVID-19.
All 100 musicians have been sent to quarantine camp.
The infected player, identified as the bass clarinet, was on stage at last weekend’s concerts. A colleague texted: ‘I am being taken to a government quarantine camp with no Wi-fi for two weeks.’
Forthcoming performances have been cancelled for at least two weeks.
