Hong Kong is threatening to knock on the doors of residents who do not respond to officials conducting mandatory-trial blitzes, as the city seeks to end a persistent winter wave of coronovirus cases.

“The government can take legal action, including removing individuals or applying to a magistrate for a warrant and legally entering an entity,” officials said in a statement on Tuesday.

The Asian Financial Center is attempting to curb the fourth wave of the Kovid-19 transition with targeted lockdowns, which have seen officials move away from an area and restrict movement until residents receive negative results. The government has suggested that intentional tests may be conducted in some areas ranging from dense settlements to only a handful of buildings.

According to Bloomberg’s calculations, during the surprise Monday evening in the four Hong Kong districts, 17% of the 680 households did not have officers. The government said it did not find any positive cases after testing for about 1,700 residents.

‘Ambush Style’

Hong Kong, with a dense settlement of 7.5 million people, has remained relatively unaffected by the virus compared to other major financial centers. The city has experienced fewer than 10,500 cases and just 182 deaths since the epidemic began.
