Social distancing measures extended

The Government today announced that social distancing measures currently in place will be maintained until May 26.   The Food & Health Bureau said the Government relaxed certain restrictions with the vaccine bubble as the basis on April 29, with a view to responding to the aspirations of various trades and the public to resume normal daily lives as soon as possible.   It added that the implementation of the first phase of measures under the vaccine bubble is generally in order.   The bureau explained that to allow the relevant operators of premises and the general public to get used to the relevant measures, the Government will continue to maintain the existing restrictions applicable to catering business premises and scheduled premises, as well as the requirements for group gatherings and mask wearing. http://dlvr.it/RzXrgk

55 COVID-19 cases reported

The Centre for Health Protection today announced it is investigating an additional 55 COVID-19 cases, of which 51 are locally transmitted.   Sixteen of the local cases are untraceable, the centre’s Communicable Disease Branch Head Dr Chuang Shuk-kwan said at a press briefing this afternoon.   Dr Chuang pointed out that more than 80 preliminary positive cases have also been detected.   She said: “I understand that quite a few cases are reported from the community testing centre in Yau Ma Tei.   “It is possible that with the compulsory testing, more local residents know about this test and come forward for testing. Hopefully, we can investigate them and stop the spread.   "But of course, the sheer number of cases - so many cases - is a concern because any one of them may cause a major outbreak in the community and a further spread.”   Additionally, Dr Chuang said one of the confirmed local cases is a resident of an elderly care home.   “The elderly person mainly stayed in the home, so we suspect that there may be some silent transmissions in the elderly home.   “Because we have one case, so it’s possible that there may be some other cases later on or that have gone undetected at the moment, so we have put all of them under quarantine in the AsiaWorld-Expo at the present moment.”   For information and health advice on COVID-19, visit the Government's dedicated webpage.
