With serious cases and hospital admissions on the rise, government has expressed concerns about growing pressure on the healthcare system

As Hong Kong once again reports an increase in coronavirus infections and hospitalisation rates, some health experts have suggested “hybrid immunity” could be a way of preventing a repeat of the city’s fifth wave of cases.

With case numbers rising, Chief Executive John Lee Ka-chiu on Monday said a quarter of healthcare resources would be allocated to caring for Covid-19 patients by the end of this month.

Several public health experts, including two government advisers, however, have called for authorities to gradually lift social-distancing measures as part of efforts to develop hybrid immunity among residents.
