We all know how the covid 19 pandemic hit everyone in the world. Despite many measures, many countries are still struggling hard to get it over with every wave that is hitting. Though the vaccinations are out, we must not be careless about the deadly virus that is around us. The situation of Hong Kong is very perilous. It is now facing its fifth wave. Let us know how the situations are.
Carrie Lam who is the chief executive stated that the Chinese central government has been extending help in the city, which remains a nominally autonomous enclave. Despite of its varying success, Hong Kong has stuck with China’s zero-tolerance strategy which requires lockdown, quarantines, and mass COVID testing.
Lam gave a statement to the reporters that “So far, our measures to contain the spread of the diseases remain legitimate and valid.” He also stated that ” The problem that we are facing is given the magnitude, the pace of and the severity of this fifth wave. It has outgrown our capacity.”
At present, the city has reported 2,071 new cases on Monday, with that number expected to be doubled on Tuesday with more than 4,500 positive identities. He also stated that authorities will designate as quarantine points new public housing units that have yet to be occupied with along 10,000 hotel rooms. Hong Kong wants confirmed coronavirus patients to isolate themselves.
