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

1 COVID-19 death recorded

The Hospital Authority today said a 77-year-old male COVID-19 patient has passed away, taking the number of COVID-19 patients who died in public hospitals to 202.   The patient was admitted to the Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital on July 20 last year for isolation treatment.   His condition deteriorated and he was transferred to the hospital's intensive care unit on July 27.   After treatment, the patient's antibody test result for COVID-19 was positive and he was released from an isolation order by the Department of Health on August 28.   Due to underlying diseases, he continued to stay in the hospital and was then transferred to Grantham Hospital's Tuberculosis & Chest Medical Unit on March 22 for further treatment.   The patient's condition continued to deteriorate and he passed away this afternoon.
