All foreign domestic helpers in Hong Kong must be vaccinated before they can renew their work contracts, according to the government which announced the new measures on April 30, 2021. It has also ordered all helpers to undergo mandatory Covid-19 testing by May 9, 2021, after a 39-year-old domestic worker was confirmed to be the first untraceable local case of a mutated strain of Covid-19. The compulsory testing and vaccination order have caused an uproar among the city’s 370,000 foreign domestic helpers, with some accusing the arrangement as “discriminatory”.
