Testing records checked

The Government today completed a joint enforcement operation at Block 12 of Richland Gardens in Kowloon Bay, which was earlier included in a compulsory testing notice.   The enforcement action was conducted from around 8am to 11am by the Constitutional & Mainland Affairs Bureau together with Police and the Department of Health.   Out of the 269 people whose records were checked, three had failed to comply with the notice. They were issued with a compulsory testing order and a fixed penalty notice of $10,000. http://dlvr.it/SZ0L3K

113k people get virus test

Over 113,000 people had their specimens collected at 21 community testing centres (CTCs) and 35 mobile specimen collection stations on May 1, a record high for daily specimen collection at those places, the Government announced.   Among them, more than 52,000 are foreign domestic helpers.   As of 6pm today, over 54,000 specimens have been tested and no preliminarily positive result has been found so far.   The Food & Health Bureau thanked the public for their co-operation in undergoing compulsory testing for COVID-19.   There are nearly 40,000 booking places available for the next seven days at the 21 CTCs where booking and walk-in services are available, it added.   Members of the public may call the testing centres for enquiries on the availability of bookings or walk-in quotas before visiting.   Given the surge in testing demand within a short period, the Government will set up one more mobile specimen collection station at Sai Ying Pun Community Complex tomorrow for people subject to compulsory testing.   It will also extend the service period of the stations at King George V Memorial Park, Kowloon, MacPherson Playground and Arthur Street Temporary Playground in Yau Ma Tei to May 10 and those at 100 Granville Road in Tsim Sha Tsui East and Hankow Road in Tsim Sha Tsui to May 16.
