Expert warns of significant rebound after Father’s Day


Government medical adviser David Hui Shu-cheong has expressed concern that public gatherings during Father’s Day on Sunday will cause a significant rebound in Covid infections.

Meanwhile, the Chinese University professor said the current epidemic situation in Hong Kong is similar to that in Singapore, with both places emphasizing on pushing further up the vaccination rate to create a “protection barrier”.
