Hong Kong’s government will expand social restrictions aimed at handling the coronavirus for the following 14 days, the Chinese-ruled city’s chief Carrie Lam says.

The town has supported 1025 total cases and four deaths since the epidemic started in January.

Hong Kong banned public gatherings of more than four individuals for 14 days from March 29 and later extended that limitation until April 23.

All game centres, cinemas, gyms and other similar places of public amusement and entertainment are closed. Foreign arrivals at the airport have been suspended for the foreseeable future.
