A third wave of the pandemic has hit Hong Kong, and the situation is getting worse.

As of last week, the number of new cases in Hong Kong surpassed 3 figures for 4 consecutive days, averaging at over 110 people daily.

This is a significant rise from the week before, where the numbers reported were only 2 digits.

The government has also banned dining out, which will kick in effective Wednesday (29th July).

Health experts have blamed the resurgence of new cases on a raft of loopholes that exempted thousands of travellers and sea/air crew from being tested and quarantined.

At the rate the numbers are climbing, there is a possibility the country may enter another state of lock-downs.

Hong Kong’s total number of confirmed cases stands at 2633 people today.
