Government strengthens testing arrangements for inbound persons and suspends route-specific flight suspension mechanism
Government strengthens testing arrangements for inbound persons and suspends route-specific flight suspension mechanism

The Government announced that upon preliminary review of data and scientific analysis, it is considered that further enhanced and more frequent nucleic acid testing for inbound persons is more effective in halting the importation of cases. The Government has therefore decided to suspend from today (July 7) the route-specific flight suspension mechanism until further notice. A Government spokesman said, "The decision to implement the new measures was made upon careful review of relevant data, and the fact that it is currently the peak period for students studying aboard to return to Hong Kong. The relevant measures can help reduce the impact on inbound persons, and will particularly enable young people staying in overseas places to return to Hong Kong smoothly to reunite with their families during the summer holiday. The measures will also prevent the transmission of imported cases into the community in a more precise and effective manner, in order to maximise the anti-epidemic effectiveness with the lowest social costs."
