Hong Kong considers lockdown as daily infections top 34,000

HONG KONG (AP) – Hong Kong reported a record-high 34,466 new infections yesterday as deaths continued to climb, with health authorities saying that a lockdown has not been ruled out even though the city’s leader last week said that a citywide lockdown was unrealistic.

Hong Kong is currently grappling with the fifth wave of the coronavirus, driven primarily by the Omicron variant.

Yesterday more than 34,000 cases have more than quadrupled from a week ago, when the city reported over 7,500 infections.
