SCRI predicts five more districts to face high Omicron risks

12 Jan 2022

The research team led by Prof. Shi Wenzhong, Director of the Otto Poon Charitable Foundation Smart Cities Research Institute predicted the spatiotemporal spread of Omicron in the Hong Kong community by big data, using the locations of patients, time of their diagnosis and developing symptoms, population mobility, vaccination rate, and social distance index to figure out high-risk areas. The average risk of being infected with Omicron in Hong Kong will increase in the next week, with high-risk districts rising to 11 from the current six, to include areas such as Sha Tin and Kowloon Bay.
