Chan Kwok-ki, Algernon Yau in quarantine

​Director of Chief Executive’s Office Chan Kwok-ki and Secretary for Commerce & Economic Development (designate) Algernon Yau are undergoing quarantine in accordance with the Centre for Health Protection’s guidelines, the Government said today.   They were identified as close contacts after an assessment by the centre, as Mr Chan’s wife and a friend of Mr Yau had tested preliminary positive for COVID-19.    Both men have regularly conducted COVID-19 rapid antigen tests and the results have been negative. They also tested negative after conducting a COVID-19 rapid antigen test today. http://dlvr.it/SSZsfs

13 virus cases detected

(To watch the full media session with sign language interpretation, click here.)   More than 7,000 people in the restricted area in Jordan have undergone COVID-19 testing and so far 13 have preliminarily tested positive for the virus, the Government said today.    At a media session this evening, Secretary for Food & Health Prof Sophia Chan hailed the operation as effective and explained that the 13 cases detected in the compulsory testing exercise represent a positive rate of 0.17%.    “In fact, if you look at the percent positive rate and the Hong Kong Government’s testing strategy - that is the compulsory testing, the target group testing, plus the voluntary testing - the overall positivity rate is also about 0.17%. So it is similar.   “I think the compulsory testing and also the testing within an area with the restriction of movement are effective in identifying these cases, and also very quickly - as soon as possible - detecting as well as isolating these cases. Their close contacts will also be quarantined. So I think this is an effective method in this particular situation.”
