New harbourfront space opens

The Development Bureau announced that the Pierside Precinct near Wan Chai Ferry Pier further opened today, providing a nostalgic harbourfront leisure space with a panoramic view of Victoria Harbour for the public.   Being the 12th harbourfront leisure space that opened since October last year, the newly opened area is located to the east of the ferry pier on a harbour site reclaimed for the construction of the Central-Wan Chai Bypass.   The bureau said under the incremental approach, a 180-metre-long promenade of the precinct opened earlier in March, followed by the opening of a further 80m in October.   With an area of about 4,600 sq m, the newly opened part has almost doubled the precinct's original space.   In contrast to the colourful cartoon style adopted at other harbourfront sites opened earlier in Western District and Wan Chai, the precinct mainly comprises simple fair-faced concrete and wooden structures.   It features a stylish touch with its clear and rectiline

81 COVID-19 cases reported

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating 81 additional COVID-19 cases, of which 78 are locally transmitted.    Among the local cases, 35 have unknown sources of infection.    At a press briefing this afternoon, the centre’s Communicable Disease Branch Head Dr Chuang Shuk-kwan said 21 of the newly infected patients live in Yau Ma Tei and six live in Sham Shui Po.   Another patient, from the Sheung On Elderly Home in Jordan, tested positive after being placed in a quarantine centre. Dr Chuang explained that there may be a small-scale hidden transmission of COVID-19 in the elderly home.   Dr Chuang added that 26 residents of Kensington Plaza in Jordan had been evacuated and the other residents concerned had been accounted for.   The Department of Health yesterday announced the decision to issue quarantine orders for all asymptomatic residents of the building’s C units on all floors and transfer them to quarantine centres.   For information and health advice on COVID-19, visit the Government's dedicated webpage.
