From September 26, Hong Kong will abolish the controversial regulation, based on which people arriving in the city had to quarantine for three days in a designated hotel. The local authorities introduced the measure more than two and a half years ago due to the spread of the coronavirus, but it complicated life for residents and businesses.
People arriving in Hong Kong will be allowed to stay at home or in a hotel, but will have to monitor their health for three days. They will be allowed to go to school or work, but they will not visit bars or restaurants during this period. After a negative test on the fourth day, they will be able to move without restrictions.
People who are going to Hong Kong by air will no longer have to undergo a PCR test for the coronavirus two days before departure, an antigen test will suffice.
Business groups, diplomats and residents are criticizing Hong Kong authorities’ measures against the spread of the coronavirus, saying they threaten the city’s competitiveness and its position as a global financial center.
Hong Kong is a special administrative region of China. In mainland China, the strategy of “zero covid” still applies, and upon arrival from abroad, people must undergo a seven-day quarantine in a hotel, writes the DPA agency.
