Hong Kong stocks ended more than one percent higher Tuesday as hopes for the rollout of vaccines and a new US stimulus helped offset worries about surging virus infections and lockdowns.

The Hang Seng Index rose 1.32%, or 368.53 points, to 28 276.75.

The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index climbed 2.18%, or 76.84 points, to 3 608.34 - its highest level since the end of 2015 - while the Shenzhen Composite Index on China's second exchange added 1.86%, or 44.10 points, to 2 419.96.
