HK to lift flight bans, cut quarantine for arrivals

HONG KONG (AP) – Hong Kong’s leader yesterday said that the city would lift flight bans on countries including Britain and the United States (US) as well as reduce quarantine time for travellers arriving in the city as coronavirus infections in its latest outbreak plateaus.

The city’s chief executive Carrie Lam announced during a press conference yesterday that a ban on flights from nine countries – Australia, Canada, France, India, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines, Britain and the US – would be lifted from April 1.
