HEALTH-CORONAVIRUS-HONG-KONG: Coronavirus: Hong Kong calls for limiting travel
HONG KONG (Reuters ) - Hong Kong chief executive Carrie Lam again urged the population on Tuesday to stay confined and avoid dispensable family gatherings as China's special administrative region struggles to control a rise in new coronavirus infections.
The government on Monday announced stricter health measures, especially for rallies, and asked most officials to work from home. Schools will close their doors on Wednesday until the end of the year.
So far, Hong Kong has not imposed full lockdown, as other cities around the world have.
More than 6,300 cases of contamination have been identified in the financial center since the start of the epidemic, including 76 additional infections on Monday.
Despite the restriction on gatherings to four in force so far, larger groups have been seen regularly across the territory, particularly during weekends and holidays. However, most people wear a mask at all times.
