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

Discovery Bay restricted area set

The Government tonight made a restriction-testing declaration for Jovial Court, Peninsula Village in Discovery Bay due to a preliminary positive imported COVID-19 case involving the L452R mutant strain.   The Centre for Health Protection said the 23-year-old male patient returned from the US to Hong Kong.   He left on November 14 for the US after testing negative for COVID-19 on November 13. He arrived in the city on November 20 by flight CX521 and his specimen collected upon arrival at the Hong Kong International Airport tested positive for the virus.   The patient is symptomatic and his specimen carried the L452R mutant strain. He received two doses of the BioNTech vaccine on April 27 and May 18 in Hong Kong.   In view of the presence of a mutant strain, the Government decided to make a restriction-testing declaration for Jovial Court.   The declaration took effect from 7.40pm and aims to be finished by about 6am tomorrow. People in the restricted area are required to stay in their premises and undergo compulsory testing before midnight.   Those who have undergone testing from November 19 to 21 and can provide the SMS notification or related certification containing the test results do not need to get tested again.   According to today’s compulsory testing notice, people who had been at the premises for more than two hours from October 30 to November 21 must undergo compulsory testing by November 23 even if they were not in the restricted area when the declaration took effect. Vaccinated people are also subject to the requirement.   Moreover, the places where the patient had visited in Hong Kong during the incubation period will also be included in a compulsory testing notice.
