Hong Kong airport bans transit flights from more than 150 countries

Passengers from more than 150 nations will be banned from transiting through Hong Kong, its airport said Friday, in the latest ramping up of the city's strict anti-coronavirus travel measures.

 "Passenger transfer/transit services via Hong Kong International Airport for any persons who have stayed in Group A specified place(s) in the past 21 days will be suspended," the airport said in a statement on its website.

 The suspension will come into force on Sunday, for a month.
