Coronavirus: Hong Kong-Singapore travel bubble won t burst despite mutated strain, on course for mid-May launch target

A long-awaited Covid-19 travel bubble between Hong Kong and Singapore will remain on course for a mid-May launch, according to sources, despite the former having confirmed community cases of a mutated coronavirus strain. The two cities are set to outline plans in the coming days for restoring travel links next month, sources familiar with the talks have revealed. “We will not pull out of the plan,” a Hong Kong government insider said on Tuesday (April 20) morning. “The Singapore government is very keen on materialising it as soon as possible.” The development came as Singapore announced it would halve the isolation period required for travellers from Hong Kong to seven days starting from Thursday and they would also be allowed to stay at their place of residence instead of a dedicated government facility.
