Hong Kong and Taiwan issue new restrictions for those arriving from Mainland China

The number of people infected with the new coronavirus in mainland China grew by 3887 new cases and 65 new deaths on Tuesday alone, according to reports from the Chinese authorities.

The number of confirmed cases declared by the authorities is 24.324 with another 3000 in critical conditions, but the number could be much higher.

The death toll in China is currently 490, 1 in Hong Kong and one in the Philippines. Hong Kong also confirmed 21 new coronavirus cases.

Hong Kong will impose a mandatory quarantine for anyone arriving from China, including foreigners and residents of Hong Kong. The Hong Kong governor Carrie Lam is facing growing dissent by health workers and the community for her lack of action.

“The next 14 days is a crucial period to stop the spread of disease in the community” Carrie Lam said.

The airline Cathay Pacific has requested its staff to take three weeks of unpaid leave because the airline is struggling with the coronavirus epidemic and eight months of political unrest in the city.
