A mandatory PCR test on day 12 has to be done.
Earlier, Lam’s administration was criticised and attacked for strict zero-covid policy. In a press conference on January 22, Lam said that Hong Kong was not aiming to achieve a absolute zero as a strategy.” The alternative to this type of strategy will be the so-called ‘living with the virus’ — in other words, we open our borders, we have no social distancing measures, we will, like one country, announce that you don’t even have to wear your mask.”
