A decision as to whether to delay a planned travel bubble between Hong Kong and Singapore for a second time is likely to be taken early next week, Transport Minister Ong Ye Kung said.

The quarantine-free travel corridor was set to open on May 26th, though Singapore has seen rising cases of Covid. An earlier attempt at creating a bubble last year failed after Hong Kong faced its fourth wave. Flights between the two cities had reportedly been booked to capacity.
