Hong Kong ‘may cut hotel quarantine to 5 days, with 2 more in home isolation’

Professor Lo Chung-mau, who will be new secretary for health on July 1, reveals ‘5+2’ option among possibilities being considered to help shorten quarantine
Hong Kong could cut hotel quarantine for travellers to five days, with another two to be spent in home isolation, the incoming health minister has told the Post.

Professor Lo Chung-mau on Tuesday revealed the possibility of the city easing its Covid-19 curbs, the same day mainland China reduced quarantine time for overseas arrivals.

Some health experts and politicians said the mainland’s move could have an impact on Hong Kong’s own Covid-19 restrictions and open up room for manoeuvring, provided the change was backed up by scientific evidence and data.
