Hong Kong to ease rules after zero local cases over 14 days


The officials in Hong Kong will work on adjusting the social distancing measures as there have been zero local coronavirus cases in the past 14 days. They will also shorten the quarantine rules and reduce them to seven days.
Hong Kong residents who have been vaccinated and tested positive antibodies against Covid-19 will have to be in a mandatory seven-day quarantine from 30th June onwards, instead of 14 to 21 days. This rule is also valid for non-residents who are coming to Hong Kong.
Carrie Lam, the chief executive on Monday, stated that the residents should undergo an antibody test before flying out of Hong Kong. When they come back as test negative, their quarantine can be shortened to seven days.
All these rules were announced after a 90-minute briefing where a promise was made by Mrs. Lam wherein she stated that the government will adopt a vigorous yet approach that is precise to keep all the imported cases away.
Currently, people who are a non-resident of hong kong can only enter if they are flying down from low-risk counties like New Zealand and Australia. Flight from places under extremely high risk will continue to be banned, and flights can be suspended if any mutated strains are found.
