The government has admitted it is struggling to contain the fifth wave of infections, fuelled by Omicron. Chinese President Xi Jinping urged the local leaders to take "all necessary measures", in a rare intervention. The comments may signal tighter controls in China's special administrative region, which pursues a zero Covid policy – but without the strict mass testing and lockdowns seen in mainland China.
