Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor has revealed a raft of changes to the city’s Covid-19 pandemic control measures which will start from April, including a reduction in the length of quarantine for people arriving in the city, as well as lifting flight bans on travel from Australia, Canada, France, India, Pakistan, the Philippines, the UK, the US and Nepal. During a March 21, 2022, press conference, Lam also said her government will suspend plans for compulsory universal testing. Social-distancing rules will be relaxed in three phases from April 21, she said, “if there is no rebound in cases”, and schools will be able to resume face-to-face classes from April 19.
