HONG KONG (Reuters) - A 72-year-old man died in Hong Kong from coronavirus on Tuesday, taking the death toll from COVID-19 in the city to six, local television Cable TV said.

Hong Kong has avoided the large numbers of infections seen in other big cities around the world, but on Monday it reported its biggest spike in months, with 30 imported new cases taking the total to 1,162.
