12 Aug – Robert Mak recently defended his and Lau Siu Kwan's decision to meet up for tea in public to celebrate their recovery from COVID-19.
As reported on Mingpao, the Hong Kong actor who was slammed by netizens who accused him and Lau of "spreading germs" and not practising good hygiene while in a public place because of their meeting, stated that he and Lau have already developed antibodies for the virus and would not jeopardise other people's health.
"Lau Siu Kwan and I were in the same boat, so we celebrated our health with tea. I would be taking a good rest now and do my own thing, but the most important thing is to not affect others," he said.
As for Lau, the actor said that he hopes everybody will understand that they have already recovered and would not pose risk to others.
Robert and Lau were diagnosed with COVID-19 just a few days shy of one another, with both being the fourth and fifth people who were infected in the showbiz cluster that started with Hong Kong singer Zaina Sze.
