Hong Kong orders compulsory PCR tests for all its citizens

0 12
Hong Kong’s government has ordered the compulsory PCR testing of all of its 7.5 million citizens as the city battles surging coronavirus infections.
Chief Executive Carrie Lam said residents would have to undergo three rounds of tests starting in mid-March.
Schools will break early for summer.
The territory is trying to adhere to China’s “zero Covid” policy, but the highly contagious Omicron variant has overwhelmed its hospitals and testing and quarantine facilities.
While other parts of the world are learning to live with the disease, China’s policy is to try to eradicate infection through early testing, detailed contact tracing and strict quarantine and travel restrictions.
“The coming one to three months are crucial in fighting the pandemic,” Mrs Lam told reporters. “This quickly worsening epidemic has far exceeded the Hong Kong government’s ability to tackle it.” (Foreign Agencies)
