‘We will beat the coronavirus,’ reads Jing Luo’s sign

Jing Luo, who manages the Subway on McCallum Road, wants to spread the message “we will win” in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

So far, Luo says he’s only had one person order the ‘happy meal’, but says he wants others to know about the offer in case they’re in need.

The store is open until 9 p.m. daily at 1016 McCallum Road.

“Keep calm and carry on,” says Luo, echoing his sign — ‘We will beat coronavirus.’
