Hong Kong protesters target virus clinic

Police in Hong Kong have used pepper spray to disperse a crowd protesting against a proposed clinic for suspected coronavirus infections.

Under government plans, the clinic in the Tai Po area would be one of 18 across the city designated for treating suspected Covid-19 cases. Officials say the clinics will ease pressure on Hong Kong’s main hospitals in the event of a large-scale outbreak.

But the plan has alarmed local people. Last week two other clinics were firebombed, the South China Morning Post reported.
