Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) government will provide free COVID-19 tests for all residents in an effort to contain the ongoing outbreak, Chief Executive Carrie Lam said on Friday.

The citywide testing is voluntary and likely to be implemented in two weeks at the earliest, Lam said, adding that the testing is carried out by three testing agencies from the Chinese mainland and some health officials will assist in the testing.

HKSAR reported 89 new COVID-19 cases on Friday, 81 of which are locally transmitted, and the total number of confirmed cases has surpassed 3,900 with 46 deaths, according to the region's Center for Health Protection.
