Hong Kong: employment protection, pay cuts to fight Covid-19

Apr 08, 2020 21:16 IST

Hong Kong announced on Wednesday a new round of coronavirus relief measures which included approx 10.2 billion US dollar employment protection programme to help businesses keep employees in jobs. Hong Kong Executive Carrie Lam said the Island was facing an 'unprecedented challenge'. She also announced that she and principal government officials would take a 10% pay cut this year. Hong Kong has reported just under 1,000 Covid-19 cases so far, but concerns have risen in recent weeks about a new wave of imported cases and further spread.
