Friday, November 20, 2020

Hong Kong will suspend classes for students in primary one to primary three for two weeks from next  Monday. 

The Secretary for Health, Sophia Chan Siu-chee, announced today in a 12:30pm briefing, that the junior primary students face a high risk of infection.

"The younger they are, the less they are able to take care of themselves,'' Chan said, explaining the decision, prompted by a number of upper respiratory tract infections among the students.

Parents and teachers of higher primary classes have been advised to be vigilant, as well.

Kindergartens were suspended last Saturday.
