Hong Kong bans eight countries flights

Hong Kong officials on Wednesday implemented the city’s strictest restrictions since  the coronavirus was first

detected here two years ago, including banning all passenger flights from eight countries,

as it holds firm to a “zero-covid” policy amid a growing outbreak of the omicron variant.

HK has only a handful of community infections, including six omicron cases linked to a restaurant cluster.

But the harsh restrictions are in part a response to the territory’s relatively low vaccination rates,

particularly among the elderly.

Only about 20 percent of those above age 80 are fully vaccinated,  according to government statistics.

The flight bans are the most widespread restrictions on travel into Hong Kong since the pandemic began,

although authorities periodically ban certain airline routes if they are found to be carrying several

travelers infected with the coronavirus.
