Airlines are now planing more flights but it seems the problem of tight supply for quarantine rooms remains, extending the wait before travelers can come back to the city.
According to Trip.com, the reservation for a seven-day stay in a quarantine room is only available as soon as August 21 at Cordis Hong Kong in Mong Kok, charging from HK$1,600 a night, including tax and other additional fees.
That means returnees will be billed HK$11,200 alone for their seven-day isolation. Other hotels are full already before this date as shown by the search results.
More rooms are available only starting in September while supply becomes steady in October.
A total of 65 hotels are providing rooms in government's eighth cycle of the designated quarantine hotels scheme.
