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

Duo sentenced for hiding health data

Two people were sentenced by the courts today after being convicted for providing false information in relation to the Centre for Health Protection’s epidemiological investigation of COVID-19 cases.   The duo were patients of COVID-19. They were charged with violating the Prevention & Control of Disease (Disclosure of Information) Regulation.   The 30-year-old man provided false information to authorised officers on six occasions between April 16 and 18 while the 31-year-old woman provided false information to an authorised officer on April 17.   At the Kowloon City Magistrates' Courts, the man was sentenced to immediate imprisonment for three months while the woman was sentenced to imprisonment for 20 days.   The Department of Health said it is grossly irresponsible to conceal or provide false or misleading information to an authorised officer as such act may hinder the contact tracing process and pose a serious threat to public health.   Resolute action will be taken against those who have breached the relevant regulations, the department added.   Four people have been convicted so far for breaching the regulation.
