HONG KONG, Jan 19 ― The Hong Kong government said today it will extend work from home arrangements for civil servants by a week until January 27 as the global financial hub seeks to contain a rise in coronavirus infections into triple digits.

Yesterday, Hong Kong reported 107 new cases of coronavirus, the highest number in nearly a month, fuelling concern over a new wave of infections in the densely populated city where businesses are already reeling from restrictions.

Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam said at a press briefing today that social distancing measures due to expire this week will be extended in a bid to contain the outbreak.

Covid-19 restrictions in the densely populated city include a ban on in-house dining after 6pm local time (1000 GMT) and the closure of facilities such as gyms, sports venues, beauty salons and cinemas.
