On April 19, six of the largest banks in Hong Kong will reopen their branches as the city's vaccination rate has risen and COVID-19 cases have eased, according to an SCMP report. In separate statements, HSBC, Standard Chartered, Bank of China (Hong Kong, and the city's three currency-issuing banks, said they will fully restore their branch operations next week. The move comes as Hong Kong prepares to relax some of its social-distancing rules on the back of improved vaccination rates and a slowing caseload. These six major lenders have a combined 687 branches, accounting for 62% of the total 1,100 branches in Hong Kong.
