On Thursday, Hong Kong introduced a vaccination requirement to enter malls, restaurants, and a host of other places, amid a surge in Covid 19 cases.

The semi-autonomous Chinese city reported over 17,000 cases Thursday, bringing the official tally to 84,046.

Hong Kong also previously mandated COVID testing for its entire population of 7.5 million to be carried out in March.
