Hong Kong to allow gatherings of up to 50 people as COVID-19 curbs ease

HONG KONG (Reuters) - Hong Kong will let groups of up to 50 people meet from Friday, easing an earlier limit of eight people, after reporting only a small number of coronavirus cases in recent weeks, Health Secretary Sophia Chan said.

The Asian financial hub has reported a total of 1,113 cases and four deaths since the outbreak began in late January.
