Hong Kong star Gigi Leung recently uploaded a video encouraging people to better protect themselves by carrying out their own sanitising products, when they have to continue working outside during the Covid-19 pandemic.
In a video shared on her social media account, the 43-year-old singer-actress is seen wearing a pendant-like mini portable personal air purifier.
From her briefcase, she pulled out a thermos flask, a tumbler of plain water, a bottle of air purifier spray, and a canister of disinfectant spray for use on objects.
From her handbag, she took out a tube of hand sanitiser gel and a bottle of alcohol-based anti-microbial spray.
Then came the tip that followers have been praising her for. She showed how she secured her mobile phone by putting it in a transparent waterproof plastic zip-lock bag.
“These are cheap and convenient as they are available from sports shops to be used for swimming and beach activities.
“The phone can get quite dirty, so you have to keep cleaning it. But there are sides and gaps and buttons are difficult to clean.
“That is why, putting it inside a waterproof bag, makes it easier to spray and wipe down.
“Some people say that a phone is filthier than a toilet seat. While that may be an exaggeration, it can still get very dirty, so putting it in a bag makes it more convenient for cleaning as we can spray and wipe anytime.
“Plus, it doesn’t interfere with phone usage. You can still continue to make calls and snap photos.”
She also advocated the use of hand cream because frequent use of alcohol-based sprays and hand gels can make skin very dry.
“You won’t find any lipstick or makeup inside now, since nobody can see anything after you put on a mask anyway.”
Finally, she concluded her video after showing how she put on a surgical mask before going for home for dinner.
Leung had spent a few weeks holidaying in Spain with her Spanish husband Sergio and her five-year-old daughter Sofia, celebrating the Chinese New Year and her child’s birthday with her in-laws.
Then she flew back to Hong Kong to resume work, a week before the mandatory Spanish lockdown starting March 16.
