Many citizens are fighting to buy toilet rolls because of Wuhan virus. Artiste Griselda Yeung (楊卓娜) is pointed to be one of the reasons causing fear to the public because a voice recording went viral. She suggested to her friends to buy toilet rolls in advance due to the seal off but did not really feel worried.
On 9th February 2020, Griselda confessed to Ming Pao (明報) that the voice recording belonged to her: “Yes, it comes from the group chat and is totally unexpected that it will be leaked out. I have no intention to cause fear and please maintain a positive mindset. Hong Kong people are suffering from tremendous pressure and should help one another. (Find it hard to be a good person?) I am uncertain if it is leaked out accidentally or intentionally. I will not blame on anybody and will maintain positive energy. Please refrain from fighting any stuff and only buy it if you need it for yourselves.” Griselda added she had 3 packs of toilet rolls which were for her 6 family members and 2 dogs.
