Hong Kong reported a record of more than 6,100 confirmed coronavirus cases and over 6,300 suspected infections on Thursday, as officials relaxed discharge criteria for patients to relieve pressure on the health care system amid the worsening fifth wave of the pandemic.⁠

Undersecretary for Food and Health Dr Chui Tak-yi revealed that patients could leave community isolation facilities if they tested negative seven days after their positive diagnosis, down from the previous requirement of 14 days, provided their living arrangements were suitable.⁠

Residents who had been waiting for a hospital bed for at least 14 days but had already tested negative would not be required to be admitted, he added.⁠

“Hospitals are facing a great crisis … we can’t solve the problem alone,” the Hospital Authority’s chief manager Sara Ho Yuen-ha said, adding 140 more hospital workers had been infected.⁠

Public hospitals were now so swamped that one health care worker must tend to nearly 20 patients on average during night shifts, according to David Chan Kwok-shing, chairman of the labour union Hospital Authority Employees Alliance.⁠
