Hong Kong drops COVID tests for international arrivals | DW News

The Chinese special administrative region of Hong Kong is to scrap the requirement for international arrivals to do a mandatory PCR COVID-19 test. The move, due to go into force December 29, comes after mainland China this month began to wind down its strict regime of COVID preventive measures in an abrupt change of policy following widespread protests.
