Hong Kong At Risk Of Coronavirus Community Outbreak

Hong Kong said on Saturday a jump in imported cases of COVID-19 would likely lead to a community outbreak.

According to Reuters, such an outbreak would place mounting pressure on the city’s already stretched healthcare system.

The Chinese-ruled territory has documented 273 confirmed cases of coronavirus and four deaths.

The densely populated city is trying to contain a surge in cases as people return from overseas infected with the disease.

The recent epidemic caused by imported cases is much more severe than any period of combating the pandemic in the past two months.
