Testing compliance check completed

The Government today completed a joint enforcement operation on a compulsory testing notice for CentrePoint in Sheung Wan.   The enforcement action was conducted from around 7am to 10.30am by the Central & Western District Office together with Police, the Department of Health and the Auxiliary Medical Service.   About 90 people’s test records were checked during the operation. Among them, 20 people were found to have violated the compulsory testing notice.   Noting that the enforcement process may cause inconvenience to residents, the Government appealed for their understanding as the operation was conducted to stop the spread of COVID-19. http://dlvr.it/S4kC72

5G subsidy scheme funding doubled

The Government has increased the funding earmarked for a subsidy scheme to encourage early 5G deployment from $50 million to $100 million and extended the application deadline to July 31, 2022.   It said about 100 additional projects would be accommodated as a result.   Under the Anti-epidemic Fund, the Subsidy Scheme for Encouraging Early Deployment of 5G subsidises 50% of the costs relevant to the deployment of 5G technology in a project, subject to a cap of $500,000.   Since its launch in May 2020, the Government has approved 103 applications, covering innovative applications in various sectors, such as remote mechanical maintenance, remote telemedicine application, 3D building information modelling in construction sites and 4K/8K live video broadcasting.   Secretary for Commerce & Economic Development Edward Yau said with its edge of high speed, low latency, high capacity and massive connectivity, 5G provides enormous potential for developing business services and smart city applications from smart homes to autonomous driving.   He added that the good progress has laid a solid foundation for its extensive application, and the Government will continue its efforts in promoting 5G development.   Enquiries on the scheme can be made to 2961 6333 or via email.
