[HONG KONG] Hong Kong shares tumbled Wednesday following the previous day's rally and with investors spooked by a record jump in infections in the city that many fear could see stricter containment measures introduced.

The Hang Seng Index sank 2.25 per cent, or 577.72 points, to 25,057.94.

The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index added 0.37 per cent, or 12.27 points, to 3,333.16, while the Shenzhen Composite Index on China's second exchange climbed 0.84 per cent, or 18.73 points, to 2,251.43.
