    Are Sundays traditionally lower numbers in Hong Kong? In the UK and Spain the numbers are always lower on Sunday.

    The HK graphs show no evidence of a weekly pattern and HK is always open on Sundays.
    This is possibly the start of some good news: while the total cases did not go down, the preliminary ones did and also the proportion of "unknown origin" seem lower than recent figures.

    But it will take a few more days for a trend to emerge, if it exists.

    Now "Asia's World City" is resorting to third world style healthcare

    Health Secretary Sophia Chan says the government is planning to build a temporary hospital from scratch to complement a makeshift coronavirus facility at AsiaWorld Expo.

    The minister said six experts who are due to arrive from Wuhan shortly would help with the planning and construction of the facility, using their experience from setting up similar hospitals in the early days of the pandemic. Four of them are medics and two are construction specialists.

    Seems like no quarantine for the covid test squad from Guangdong. The irony if one of them were to have brought covid over with him/her...

    Way more tests and less infections on the mainland than in HK. Would be more ironic for any of them to catch it here.
