𝟱. August 15 – People worship at a temple in #Taipei, #Taiwan, as Taiwan has seen a significant reduction of infections in recent weeks after combating a serious outbreak 2-3 months ago.
𝟲. August 17 – A man collecting lotus leaves and seedpods at West Lake in #Hangzhou , #Zhejiang province for people who place orders online. Designated personnel are doing the harvesting work to prevent people from congregating in the area during the recent COVID-19 outbreaks.
