Hong Kong to shut down schools amid virus spike

Hong Kong brings forward school summer holidays, BBC reported. 

More detail now on the news that Hong Kong is shutting all schools after a spike in local cases of Covid-19.

The city reported 42 new cases on Thursday - the second consecutive day of rising local infections. Education Secretary Kevin Yeung said some of the recent cases involved students and parents.

Schools in Hong Kong have mostly been shut since February and some international education schools are already on summer break.

But the government has now ordered all schools to close from Monday, bringing forward the start of the summer holidays.
