    The Hong Kong government yesterday confirmed that the SAR's "travel bubble" with Singapore won't get off the ground on May 26 as planned. The scheme was originally slated to be launched in November last year but was deferred after Hong Kong suffered a spike in Covid-19 cases. This time a surge in infections in Singapore was to blame.

    The world’s first travel bubble came into operation yesterday. The long-awaited Australia-New Zealand travel bubble means visitors no longer need to quarantine on arrival and thousands of passengers waited to board flights on Monday. Qantas increased its daily flights between the two countries from one to 16 to meet demand and the airline has brought 600 people back to work.

    India's capital New Delhi has imposed a week-long lockdown starting from last night, officials said, as the city struggles to contain a huge surge in Covid-19 cases with hospitals running out of beds and oxygen supplies low. The country reported a record high of 273,810 infections on Monday, the fifth consecutive day of more than 200,000 cases.
    Stocks on Wall Street retreated from record highs led by technology and consumer-discretionary stocks. Treasuries and the US dollar weakened in tandem as investors switched their focus from strong economic growth to the worsening global coronavirus situation. The S&P 500 index was down 0.5% at 4,163, its biggest daily drop in almost four weeks.
