Fraudulent certificates deemed invalid

The Government announced today the COVID-19 vaccination medical exemption certificates issued by seven private doctors will not be accepted and will be deemed invalid from October 12.   According to the information provided by Police, the seven private doctors are involved in its arrest operations to date for allegedly abusing the issuance of medical exemption certificates. The legal proceedings are ongoing for some of those cases.   The Government pointed out that according to the eHealth records, the seven private doctors have issued in total over 20,000 medical exemption certificates which are still within the validity period, accounting for more than half of the medical exemption certificates that are still valid.   It has reasonable grounds to suspect that the private doctors concerned did not properly follow the Department of Health’s guidelines when issuing the medical exemption certificates.   In this regard, the Government will no longer accept the medical exemption ce

Social distancing rules maintained

Chief Executive Carrie Lam said as the local COVID-19 epidemic situation remains stagnant, the Government will not further relax social distancing measures, at least for now.   Mrs Lam made the statement ahead of today’s Executive Council meeting and elaborated on the reason for keeping the current anti-epidemic rules in place.   “We are in a sort of stagnant situation with the daily number of COVID-19 positive-tested cases staying at around 200 and 300 cases including local infections, as well as imported cases, but there have already been over 10 such infection clusters in the community, especially the most recent two cases involving bars.   “So we will have to take a very prudent approach and my position at this moment is we probably will not introduce the third and final stage of the social distancing measures relaxation before the end of June.”   The Chief Executive pointed out that the final phase of the relaxation of social distancing measures involves removing any remaining restrictions on the operation of specified premises that include restaurants and bars.   “For example, the maximum number of people in a banquet, the capacity - whether it is 75% or 85% or whether it should go back to 100-% - and the permission of live performances.”   She added that she believes most citizens will not be affected by such measures.   “On balance, I feel these activities would not be very detrimental to the return to normalcy of the great majority of Hong Kong people.”
