Curriculum change supported

Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung today welcomed the Baptist University’s move to incorporate national security education in their curriculum, saying it is educators’ duty to promote national security education.   Making the remarks today, Mr Yeung said: “I think this is in accordance to the National Security Law because Article 10 requires all the schools including universities to promote national security education in their schools.”   He added that he believes the higher education institutions are adopting their own approaches in this cause.   “Our requirement is for all these educational institutions to follow the Hong Kong National Security Law, the requirements under the Article 10.”   When asked about a teacher’s comment concerning an athlete’s attire during an Olympic competition, Mr Yeung stressed that the whole community should support the Hong Kong team in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.   “So far I think the relevant persons have already made a clarification about

Restricted area in Jordan set up

The Government has made a restriction-testing declaration to require people within the specified restricted area in Jordan to stay in their premises and undergo compulsory testing for COVID-19 in accordance with its arrangement.   It exercised the power under the Prevention & Control of Disease (Compulsory Testing for Certain Persons) Regulation (Cap 599J).   The restricted area runs from Woosung Street to its east, Nanking Street to its south, Battery Street to its west and Kansu Street to its north.   From January 1 to 20, the specified area in Yau Ma Tei to Jordan recorded 162 confirmed cases involving 56 buildings.       In the past few days, the ratio of sewage samples found in the buildings located in the restricted area being constantly tested positive for COVID-19 was higher than that of the other places in the specified area, which implies infected people might possibly be present at those places.   Additionally, such buildings in the restricted area are relatively old and lack maintenance. Sub-divided units are common and the infection risk in the community is quite high.   After conducting a risk assessment, the Government decided that it is necessary to issue a restriction-testing declaration for the restricted area to break the transmission chain in the district and dispel the residents’ worries.   The Government said it aims to achieve the goal of zero cases in the district through this exercise.   It strives to complete testing of all identified people subject to compulsory testing and confirm the results within 48 hours to allow residents to start getting to work around 6am on Monday.       Temporary specimen collection stations are in operation at the restricted area and people subject to compulsory testing must undergo testing before midnight today.   They must also stay at their place of residence until all test results are ascertained to avoid cross-infection risk.      Those who had undergone previous testing before the declaration came into effect, including the testing under compulsory testing notices, are required to undergo testing again.   The Home Affairs Department has set up two hotlines 2399 6949 and 2835 1473 for enquiries, and a dedicated hotline 3755 6816 for ethnic minorities. The Social Welfare Department is also providing assistance to affected people.       The Food & Health Bureau will also issue a compulsory testing notice covering all premises in the restricted area.   All people who had been present in the restricted area for more than two hours in the past 14 days, even if they were not present in the restricted area at the time when the declaration took effect, must undergo compulsory testing before midnight.
