Hong Kong travel bubble with mainland may be just ‘weeks away’

Hong Kong’s border with mainland could reopen for quarantine-free travel as early as next month, starting with the launch of a proposed bubble with Guangdong for businesspeople.

However, mainland authorities remain concerned about Hong Kong’s ability to achieve a state of “zero local infections”, and uncertainties over recent Covid-19 cases could scuttle the plan.

The city was nearing the critical milestone of a full month without any local untraceable infections until the case of a four-year-old boy whose test results caused some confusion this week. Two other Hongkongers have tested positive over the past week after travelling to the mainland.

Health authorities confirmed only one coronavirus case, brought in from overseas, on Friday, which took the city’s overall tally to 11,829, with 210 related deaths.

The source said the travel bubble was originally scheduled to be launched at the end of June or in early July, with travellers required to have received a second vaccine dose at least two weeks in advance. They would also have to test negative and remain traceable with a mainland tracking app.
