Omicron Hasn't Changed Hong Kong’s Plan to Reopen Mainland Border, City’s Leader Says
(Bloomberg) — Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam said she doesn’t yet foresee a need to alter plans to reopen the city’s border with the Chinese mainland, despite China reporting its first case of the omicron variant.
Lam, Hong Kong’s chief executive, told reporters at a regular news briefing Tuesday that the officials from the city had met with mainland counterparts in neighboring Guangdong province to discuss reopening plans. The discussions are continuing despite China’s northern port of Tianjin confirming the country’s first omicron case in an incoming traveler, according to the Global Times newspaper.
