Hong Kong health officials change how they present daily Covid-19 infections

Authorities confirm 752 coronavirus infections, excluding 97 imported ones.
Hong Kong health authorities changed how they presented the number of Covid-19 cases on Tuesday by separating imported infections from the overall daily tally, while also announcing new measures to tackle a resurging fifth wave.

Authorities reported 752 coronavirus infections, excluding 97 imported ones. Under the previous system, the daily caseload stood at 849. The change of presentation method was more clearly identified in a press statement issued on Tuesday evening.

Earlier in the day, the city’s health minister revealed that residents would need to show proof of a negative Covid-19 rapid test to enter bars, pubs or clubs starting on Thursday as clusters linked to the city’s nightlife district continued to worsen.
