If all the restaurants are closed, how do you survive when you don't have a kitchen?
This is Mr. Chiu. Like many people in Hong Kong, he lives in what's called a "cage home" -- a tiny apartment the size of a bed with shared bathroom... and no kitchen.
So the city's new ban on dining at restaurants and food stalls - to keep social distancing - is making life a lot more complicated for people like him. Because eating out is what he does every day.
And there are hundreds of thousands like him.
"Of course the shutdown of eateries will affect me. If they shut down, then we…how should I put it, to a regular family, they can still buy ingredients and cook meals, but we cannot cook here. If it happens, the best I can do is buy noodles or dry food to make it though that period."
Restaurants can still serve takeout during the ban, which is only set to last seven days starting on Wednesday.
But takeout is easier said than done when your home is literally only the size of your bed.
And it's already rough for him, because earlier this month restaurants were forbidden from dining after 6 p.m.
For the city's beleaguered restaurants - the people actually making the food -- it's just as rough. They're already grappling with exorbitant rents and lost business due to anti-government protests.
