“Of Greed and Ants” Receives 2 Billion Views
Starring Eddie Cheung (張兆輝), Edwin Siu (蕭正楠), Tony Hung (洪永城), and Elaine Yiu (姚子羚), TVB drama Of Greed and Ants <黃金有罪> is airing to remarkable reception. In Mainland China, the series is currently drawing in a cumulative viewership of over 2 billion views. Perhaps due to the coronavirus outbreak, many are choosing to stay indoors rather than risk any potential infections when outdoors.
At the beginning of the month, when the coronavirus epidemic was just starting, Eddie traveled to Wuhan to attend an event. Unaware of the rising health crisis while he was there, Eddie recalled that he did not notice anything out of the norm. When he finally did find out about the outbreak, he was quick to take precautionary measures, including wearing a face mask and increasing the number of times he washed his hands.
Eddie has initially intended to travel to Italy with his family for vacation, but quickly learned that Italy has issued a ban on all incoming flights from China, including Hong Kong. Already halfway there, Eddie quickly booked a return flight during his layover and traveled back to Hong Kong.
Earlier, it was also reported that a TVB employee threw up while at work. TVB quickly reacted by sending the employee to the hospital and conducting a thorough disinfecting cleanup of the area. When asked on his outlook of the situation, Eddie confidently urged others not to panic, as Hong Kong netizens have previously dealt with the SARS pandemic and are experienced when it comes to taking precautions.
