Omicron-hit Hong Kong seeks out hotel rooms for COVID quarantine

Aljazeera says Hong Kong’s government has asked the territory’s hotels to set aside as many 10,000 rooms to be used for coronavirus quarantine, as an Omicron-fuelled wave of the virus tests its pandemic response to the limit.

The Chinese territory has seen a surge in cases – and rising deaths – in recent days with Chinese President Xi Jinping directing the local government to take “all necessary measures” to control the outbreak.

Ten people were reported to have died on Wednesday, including a three-year-old girl. Local media reported that confirmed daily cases might reach a record 5,000 on Thursday.
