HONG KONG (Reuters) - Hong Kong will relax in From Friday some measures taken to fight against the spread of the new coronavirus, the authorities announced Tuesday, while warning against any relaxation on the part of the population.

As for wearing a mask, it will no longer be compulsory for outdoor sporting activities or in city parks.

The ban on gatherings of more than two people will however remain in force and Sophia Chan has not provided any indication that this measure will be lifted in the near future.

This relaxation of restrictions comes a few days before the start, scheduled for September 1, of a massive screening of the population of the city, where around 4,700 people have been infected since the end of January, of which 77 have died.

Hong Kong experienced a surge in the number of cases of contamination by local transmission in early July, but this resumption of the epidemic has since been brought under control. The Chinese-administered city recorded only nine new cases on Monday, the lowest daily toll in nearly two months.
