According to SCMP, gaps in the Covid-19 prevention campaign in Hong Kong have caused the third wave of infection to hit more strongly than the previous two times.

The third wave is considered to be in the process of going out of control due to shortcomings in border and immigration measures, the government’s delayed response as well as public complacency.

The epidemic situation is considered an unprecedented outbreak since the outbreak.

The third wave just started to break out in just over 2 weeks from July 5, when a local restaurant chef got sick.

The city’s public health facilities are showing signs of becoming overloaded, with bed and quarantine ward occupancy rates reaching 71 and 77%, respectively.

Hong Kong issued a series of measures over the weekend, including requiring state employees to work from home from the beginning of this week, opening only necessary and urgent public services.

However, many experts say that Hong Kong’s anti-epidemic gaps seem to have lasted a long time and were only partially overcome on July 8 – when the government tightened border measures.

A statistic obtained by SCMP shows that, of the 111 Covid-19 cases imported into Hong Kong since July 8, 34 were crew members.

“This number is just the tip of the iceberg, as there may be many similar cases that have brought the disease into the community undetected or unmonitored.

In addition, according to SCMP, the third wave in Hong Kong may be related to a group of domestic maids entering the special zone when the city discovered an `outbreak` related to this group of workers.

However, according to expert Ho Pak-leung from Hong Kong University, this group of workers may pose certain risks to the special zone’s epidemic prevention strategy.

Mr. Ho gave an example: over the weekend, many maids from the Philippines and Indonesia gathered and sang and danced together without wearing masks.
