Hong Kong posted more than 100 new coronavirus cases for the sixth consecutive day on Monday as officials announced dramatic new social distancing measures aimed at checking a surge in new infections.
 

Starting Wednesday, people in the semiautonomous territory will be banned from congregating in groups of more than two and forbidden from eating in restaurants for a period of one week, Hong Kong’s Chief Secretary for Administration Cheung Kin-chung said at a press conference.

Existing mask-wearing requirements will be extended to include all outdoor areas and public sports facilities, and swimming pools will also close for one week, according to the announcement.
 

Cheung also said Sunday in a blog post on his department’s website that Hong Kong will launch a free testing initiative for more than 400,000 people deemed at high risk of catching the coronavirus, including care home residents and staff, restaurant workers, taxi drivers and residential compound managers.

Beijing will help Hong Kong build so-called field hospitals and increase nucleic acid testing capacity.
