Hong Kong Photo Gallery - COVID-19 (Parks and Playgrounds 2022)

Hong Kong had enjoyed a relatively virus-free 2021 where life went on normally until omicron arrived in late December. First linked to an air crew who returned to the city, infection numbers swelled and the retailing and restaurant industries took the brunt of social distancing curbs once again. Dine-in was banned after 6pm and entertainment venues such as theme parks, theatres, and gyms were forced to close. Even parks and playgrounds were not spared, with equipment wrapped around to prevent kids from enjoying their time there.

Many foreign helpers gather in Central on Sundays and public holidays with Central's pedestrian bridges and streets busy. One main street is also usually closed to give them more space, but as the outbreak worsened, there was a crackdown on these gatherings, which had a limit of 2 people each.

Even barcecue and rest areas within Plover Cove Country Park were not spared.
