Headlines - Hong Kong
Approximately 1.12 million of Covid-19 vaccinations (either the Sinovac vaccine or the BioNTech jab) have been given to the public, with 382,000 people fully vaccinated against Covid-19 as of 19/04/21. The Hong Kong Government aims to lower the vaccination eligibility to people of 16 -30 years old as part of the plan to achieve herd immunity for Covid-19 within the Hong Kong population. On 18/04/21, Hong Kong detected its first local case of the N501Y mutant Covid-19 strain which is known to be more infectious than the original strain. As a result, this might impact the government’s decision on their plans to ease social distancing measures in the near future. Find out more information here Covid-19 vaccination programme. Read More
