    Healthcare workers and experts from mainland China are in Hong Kong for the first time to help battle its coronavirus outbreak.

    Up to 60 healthcare professionals will be part of a team based in the territory's first makeshift hospital.

    Hospitals and testing centres were already reaching capacity, before plans were announced to test all 7.5 million people living there.
