Govt to enhance securities trading

It is a pleasure to be here with you today, especially after an accident that has reminded me of the importance of staying vigilant even in relatively peaceful times. Continuously enhancing competitiveness despite good business is also a theme I wish to harp on in today's speech.   Some of you may recall that I last spoke to you in November 2018. That was into the second year of my tenure, witnessing the celebration of the 40th anniversary of our nation's reform and opening up, and the consecutive opening of two major pieces of cross-boundary transport infrastructure - the Hong Kong section of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge.

1 imported COVID-19 case found

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating one additional COVID-19 case involving a 56-year-old man who arrived from Russia.   Additionally, the centre is investigating an overseas case with a suspected re-positive testing result. The 25-year-old female patient, a US Consulate General in Hong Kong staff member, arrived in March.   Her specimen collected on July 4 tested positive for COVID-19 and she remained asymptomatic. After admission to hospital, the test result was negative while she had a positive SARS-CoV-2 antibody test. Her specimen did not carry the N501Y or L452R mutant strain.   Initial investigations revealed that the woman had been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the US in January. After examining the epidemiological, clinical and laboratory findings, this case is considered to be compatible with a re-positive one.   The Centre for Health Protection is following up on the case with the US health authority and epidemiological investigations are ongoing.   A total of 54 cases were reported in Hong Kong in the past 14 days, including three import-related cases.   For information and health advice on COVID-19, visit the Government’s dedicated webpage.
