Hong Kong requires all COVID-19 patients under home quarantine to wear a tracking bracelet to prevent  leaving their homes

All COVID-19 patients in Hong Kong will be required to wear an electronic bracelet starting on July 17 to prevent them from leaving their homes, the city’s new health minister Lo Chung-mau stated on Monday.

Lo, as part of new Chief Executive John Lee’s Cabinet who was approved by Beijing last month, also stated on Monday that the Hong Kong government “recommends” implementing in part the health code adopted in mainland China, which prohibits COVID patients from visiting public venues and mandates mandatory quarantine for foreign visitors.

The measure will turn the QR codes of COVID-positive patients red on their LeaveHomeSafe app, and travelers will have yellow QR codes, Lo said, noting that it would make it easier to identify those who are infected and those who have come from overseas.
