Elderly coronavirus patients came under attack from angry youths who threw stones at a fleet of ambulances moving them to a new home in Spain. Angry locals obstructed the convoy and stoned the vehicles before throwing Molotov cocktails at police who were guarding the home.

"Nobody's sick," said the woman walking alongside the man holding the caution tape.

"We're free, we're free people," the man said.

"Who do you see hacking up a lung right now?" the woman added.

"Let's follow them, let's find out his licence plate," said a man off-camera.

The man on video then throws the caution tape into a garbage bin before he and the woman split up. The camera follows the man up the sidewalk in the park's parking lot.

"You're a psycho, buddy. You're psychotic," the man said, turning back to Cunningham.

"No, you are. You're psychotic. You're the one that took the stuff down," Cunningham said.

"How many kids' lives are on your hands?" a woman's voice can be heard yelling in the background off-camera.

"You're stalking me," said the man, before turning back towards Cunningham.

Hong Kong health officials are investigating whether an unsealed pipe could have led to the coronavirus spreading through an apartment building's bathroom ventilation system. If that's the case, how does it work?

"Tell me what your problem is," he added.

The argument continues before the man continues to walk away, calling the others "sick."

"See, I told you he didn't have a car," Cunningham laughed as he continues to film the man as he leaves the parking lot.

"Of course he doesn't," said the other man off-camera.

Coun. Shawn Lewis confirmed that the city had received the report, saying the city had put signage and taped the playgrounds so that it would be very clear that they are closed.

"There was one incident on the weekend of a couple tearing the caution tape off the playground. Not helpful, but that was thankfully reported to us so we could follow up on that," he said.

Questions about COVID-19? Here are some things you need to know:

Health officials caution against all international travel. Returning travellers are legally obligated to self-isolate for 14 days, beginning March 26, in case they develop symptoms and to prevent spreading the virus to others. Some provinces and territories have also implemented additional recommendations or enforcement measures to ensure those returning to the area self-isolate.

Symptoms can include fever, cough and difficulty breathing — very similar to a cold or flu. Some people can develop a more severe illness. People most at risk of this include older adults and people with severe chronic medical conditions like heart, lung or kidney disease. If you develop symptoms, contact public health authorities.

To prevent the virus from spreading, experts recommend frequent handwashing and coughing into your sleeve. They also recommend minimizing contact with others, staying home as much as possible and maintaining a distance of two metres from other people if you go out.
