HONG KONG - Hong Kong can't remove all travel restrictions at this stage of the Covid-19 pandemic, though there is room to quickly relax local social distancing rules, the city's health chief said.

"At present, the testing positive rate of our community is about 1 per cent, but that number for travellers coming to Hong Kong from other places is still 3 per cent, which is three times the risk," he said. The city reported fewer than 4,000 infections on Sunday, the lowest number since early August. There were 117 imported cases.It adopted three days of health monitoring in its place, a policy dubbed 0+3 that allows new arrivals to go to work and study but not enter restaurants or many other indoor venues.
