China to conduct mass coronavirus testing in Hong Kong

China has sent a 60-member team to Hong Kong to conduct mass testing of coronavirus to curb the rising numbers.

The team is composed of public health workers from the city of Guandong and Wuhan who will also transform important centres into hospital to fight the pandemic.

Speaking and confirming the news was Carrie Lam who said they were responding to a request from Hong Kong to curb the first rising cases of the virus.

She continued by saying they will look into ways to test the whole population if possible, something that was confirmed by a local station.

Fears have however grown that China might take advantage of the exercise and take DNA samples that may be used to monitor them.

The news come at a time when China themselves are reporting new cases of the virus from some of the previously worst hit areas.

Restrictions have currently been lifted with the Country racing against time to find a vaccine just like U.K, Russia and the U.S.
