    The bill to taxpayers for Hong Kong’s mass coronavirus screening is HK$530 million, although the total cost of the controversial programme will remain unknown until the mainland Chinese partners involved disclose how much they spent.

    The government revealed the price tag, equivalent to US$68.3 million, a day after the two-week voluntary testing came to a close on Monday, having checked less than a quarter of the city’s 7.5 million people.
