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

No virus case in restricted area

The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise for the restricted area in Jordan finished today with no confirmed COVID-19 case found.   It exercised the power under the Prevention & Control of Disease (Compulsory Testing for Certain Persons) Regulation on April 16 to make a restriction-testing declaration to require people within the specified restricted area at Parkes Building, 17-23 Parkes Street to stay in their premises and undergo compulsory testing.   The Government also issued a compulsory testing notice to those who had been at the building for more than two hours from April 9 to 16 to undergo mandatory testing by April 18 even if they were not at the building when the declaration took effect.   About 80 residents were tested.   Starting last night, the Centre for Health Protection has transferred asymptomatic residents of Parkes Building to quarantine centres, while symptomatic residents were sent to hospital for treatment.   So far, 81 residents have been transferred to quarantine centres.
