, according to reports.  The male customer who had entered the store without a face covering became angry after the fast-food chain worker reminded him to put one on, said local media. 

The incident comes as Hong Kong has launched strict measures this week to battle a surge of coronavirus infections emerging in the city since July. Viral footage shows the furious diner throwing punches at the male employee before pushing him to the ground and repeatedly kicking him. The restaurant worker is being treated at a local hospital after suffering injuries on his face, according to reports.

The incident is said to have happened in the early morning of Tuesday at a McDonald’s branch at Shan King Commercial Centre in Hong Kong’s Tuen Mun district. A man and a woman were ordering food before the restaurant manager asked them to wear face coverings. The franchise business said that they had stopped serving customers who show fever symptoms or not wearing face-coverings, according to local station

Police told the local media that they had received a report from the restaurant following the incident. The male manager, known by his surname Luo, is said to have suffered injuries on his face and been treated at a local hospital. The officers have detained a 27-year-old man, known by his surname Zhang, who was the driver of the van but not the attacker, according to reports.

The authorities are still trying to locate the male customer who beat the manager amid an ongoing investigation, said Apple Daily. A spokesperson from McDonald's said the company would continue to comply with the government’s anti-virus measures by temporarily refusing to serve customers showing fever symptoms or without face masks.

MailOnline has contacted McDonald’s for further statements. The US company's franchise businesses in mainland China and Hong Kong have been mostly owned by a state-owned company CITIC since 2017.  It comes after Hong Kong government has announced fresh anti-virus measures this week to fight what officials called 'a third wave' of COVID-19 cases.

The authorities have banned more than four people from gathering in public and requiring passengers to wear face masks on public transport or risk a £510 fine.  Alongside a ban on more than four people gathering in public, restaurants will only be able to serve takeaway food from 6:00pm to 5:00am, however they can still serve those eating in for breakfast and lunch.

This is really awful. There is so much anger and bullying.  If he is reminded to don mask by someone who is bigger size and with a  fierce look I am sure the outcome will be different. These cowards should consult a shrink before their problem become worse.

This is not acceptable.  He could spread the virus and kill himself and other people.  He should definitely be locked up.

If the staff member had fought back.  He would have changed his tune quickly.

These measures are for public safety and to reduce spread. It's upsetting to hear how frontline staff are being mistreated and attacked for enforcing measures that may save lives. It is scary to think anyone can be attacked at any time because they don't want to be told what to do.
