The travel bubble between Hong Kong and Singapore is likely to be delayed again due to a rise in Covid-19 cases in Singapore.
Singapore.- In April Singapore’s Ministry of Transport had announced that an air travel bubble with Hong Kong was to begin on May 26.
However, now it seems the travel bubble is likely to be delayed again. Although Hong Kong reported virtually zero cases of Covid-19 in recent weeks, Singapore has seen a rise in cases.
Singapore authorities said they would closely monitor the evolution of Covid-19 cases and make an announcement regarding the travel bubble with Hong Kong early next week.
It would be the second time the two countries have had to cancel plans to open a travel bubble. A travel bubble was originally planned to begin in November, but a spike in Covid-19 cases in Hong Kong put back the initiative.
The casino operator Genting Singapore Ltd reported that revenue dropped 32 per cent year-on-year during the first quarter due to the lack of tourists.
