Civil Aid Service holds parade

The Civil Aid Service (CAS) held the Celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the Establishment of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and CAS 70th Anniversary Parade today at the Police College.   Chief Secretary Chan Kwok-ki officiated at the ceremony and acted as the reviewing officer for the parade.   To demonstrate national identity and patriotic sentiment for the motherland, the CAS has fully adopted from today, the Chinese-style foot drill that requires exacting standards, and demonstrated the drill's protocols for the first time in the parade.   As an auxiliary force under the Security Bureau, the CAS has been honouring the pledge of "provide emergency relief, serve the community" and has been rendering immediate assistance during emergencies to protect Hong Kong citizens.   During the COVID-19 epidemic, the CAS has remained steadfast on the front line of the anti-epidemic operations by rapidly assisting in setting up a number of community isolation faci

Advice on vaccine use published

Two scientific committees have suggested that residents and staff of residential care homes for the elderly or disabled and other institutional facilities should be given top priority to receive COVID-19 vaccinations.   The Scientific Committee on Vaccine Preventable Diseases and the Scientific Committee on Emerging & Zoonotic Diseases under the Centre for Health Protection today published the consensus interim recommendations on using COVID-19 vaccines in Hong Kong, which were made after a meeting on January 7.   The Chief Executive’s expert advisory panel also joined the two committees at the meeting.   The recommendations focused on two vaccines, namely BNT162b2 provided by Fosun Pharma/BioNTech and AZD1222 provided by AstraZeneca.   The committees recommended that both vaccines consist of a schedule of two doses. Individuals should complete their vaccination with the same type of vaccine.   The committees suggested that the second priority for vaccination should be given to workers in healthcare settings, workers in other essential services at increased risk of exposure to COVID-19, and people aged 60 or above.   The third priority should be accorded to people with chronic medical problems aged between 16 and 59.   Click here for details of the recommendations.

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating 124 additional COVID-19 cases. More cases were detected in Kwai Chung Estate. There are also more than 70 preliminary positive cases.   Among the newly reported cases, 33 are related to Kwai Chung Estate, bringing the total number of positive and preliminary positive cases in the estate to 276.   One more positive case was found after an earlier confirmed case occurred at Glory Court, Tsuen Wan Garden, both of them live in units 5 but on two different floors. The centre has co-ordinated with related government departments and conducted an inspection today.    It was preliminarily considered that vertical transmission of virus via pipes is involved.   The centre will issue quarantine orders to residents of unit 5 on all floors of the building who resided there during the incubation period of the relevant cases and transfer them to a quarantine facility.   As it is possible that virus might be ejected from the open
