The long-awaited travel bubble between Singapore and Hong Kong has been put on hold indefinitely for a second time amid a sharp resurgence in untraceable Covid-19 cases in the city state.

Monday’s decision to suspend the quarantine-free corridor, which had been set to launch on May 26, followed a morning meeting between Hong Kong commerce chief Edward Yau Tang-wah and Singapore transport minister S. Iswaran.

A further announcement on when to resume the launch of the travel bubble will be made on or before June 13, when Singapore’s current round of anti-pandemic measures are due to expire. The two cities would continue to exchange data and closely review developments, a Hong Kong government statement said.

The Singapore government said travellers were still allowed to continue their journeys on non-designated flights, but they would be subject to the prevailing quarantine arrangements. Singapore residents returning to the city state would be subject to seven days of home quarantine upon arrival.
