Mainland Chinese officials and experts will meet their Hong Kong counterparts in the “coming days” in Shenzhen to discuss the best way to help the city fight a surging fifth wave of Covid-19 infections.
In a late-night statement on Thursday, the cabinet-level Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office (HKMAO) said the central government was “highly concerned” about the city’s raging fifth wave. A spokesman said the meeting would discuss measures to support Hong Kong’s efforts to contain the outbreak and guarantee mainland supplies to the city.
A Beijing-based source said the meeting could be held as early as Saturday and the mainland was preparing to send “thousands of medical and lab personnel and millions of testing kits” to come to Hong Kong’s rescue.
“The HKMAO, Hong Kong liaison office, National Health Commission, Guangdong and Shenzhen officials will join Hong Kong senior officials to go through Hong Kong’s wish list and decide on the best way going forward,” the source said.
