HONG KONG - OVERVIEW

The HKSAR Government has implemented a comprehensive and coordinated approach to contain the spread of COVID-19 and protect the health of the community, with actions that are guided by three key principles: responding promptly, staying alert to the situation, and working in an open and transparent manner. The Government will continue to listen to the views of the experts and various sectors and adjust the various epidemic control measures in a gradual and orderly manner under the “suppress and lift” strategy according to the actual development of the epidemic situation while considering the impact of the measures on the economy, livelihood and the daily lives of people.
