Hong Kong to suspend all schools due to spike in coronavirus cases-media

HONG KONG, July 10 (Reuters) - Hong Kong is set to announce the suspension of all schools after a spike in locally transmitted coronavirus cases that has fuelled fears of a renewed community spread in the city, the South China Morning Post reported on Friday.

The newspaper cited a medical source as saying that at least 30 more people had tested positive for the virus.

The Asian financial hub reported 42 new cases on Thursday, of which 34 were locally transmitted, marking the second consecutive day of rising local infections.

The total number of cases in the city since late January now stands at 1,366. Seven people have died. (Reporting by Clare Jim and Anne Marie Roantree; Writing by Farah Master Editing by Shri Navaratnam)
