Kenneth Ma Heads to Singapore for Work
In midst of the Wuhan Coronavirus outbreak that has spread to many countries, Kenneth was seen wearing a face mask at the airport getting ready to fly to Singapore. While there are a total of seven people infected with the virus in Singapore to-date, it’s flying and going through crowded airports that can make people wary of traveling at this time.
Seen wearing a face mask, Kenneth still took time to take pictures with his fans and spoke with the press before boarding his flight. Kenneth revealed that he has to make an appearance at a promotional event at a mall with Ekin Cheng (鄭伊健) in Singapore.
The 45-year-old actor said, “I’ll be careful, but there’s only so much you can worry about. Originally, I was supposed to attend an event on the second day of Lunar New Year in Huizhou, but that got cancelled. However, this event didn’t get cancelled so I have to go. I trust that it’s pretty safe in Singapore and I’ve prepared masks and sanitizing wipes.”
Asked if Kenneth will linger in Singapore after his work is completed, he said, “Of course not! I’ll be heading straight back to Hong Kong – my parents are still in Hong Kong and I’m worried about my family.”
As many pharmacies in Hong Kong is seeing a shortage of face masks, does Kenneth plan to buy more supplies in Singapore to bring home? He said, “I was just thinking about it because I think masks aren’t selling out as quickly over there. I’m sure there’ll be some available. I hope that Hong Kong will start having masks again, but we’ll still need to wait for the government’s official announcement. I hope everyone can stay healthy.”
Although his event appearances may change due to the coronavirus outbreak, Kenneth will soon start filming for TVB drama Who Wants a Baby 2 <BB來了2> soon. He admitted he brought the script with him on this trip to Singapore so he can prepare ahead of time.
While many television dramas and films have halted filming in Mainland China due to the coronavirus outbreak, filming inside TVB Studios has not been affected. For health and safety precautions, TVB has started screening procedures for its employees for symptoms of coronavirus infection.
