CE begins visit to Xi'an

Chief Executive Carrie Lam left Chongqing for Xi'an today and began her visit programme in Shaanxi Province.   After arriving in Xi'an, she met Shaanxi Governor Zhao Yide and attended a lunch he hosted.   Mrs Lam said she was pleased to visit Shaanxi for the first time as Chief Executive and congratulated Shaanxi on the successful hosting of the 14th National Games.   She expressed hope that Shaanxi would share its valuable experience, enabling the governments of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, Guangdong Province and the Macau SAR to do a good job in hosting the 15th National Games in 2025.   Noting that Shaanxi is a key link for the nation's Belt & Road Initiative with its rich cultural history, the Chief Executive said the two places can build on the close trade and economic ties to enhance collaboration to contribute to the initiative and promote arts and cultural exchanges between China and the rest of the world.   She added that the Hong Kong

13 COVID-19 cases identified

(To watch the full press briefing with sign language interpretation, click here.)   The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating 13 additional COVID-19 cases, of which 12 are locally transmitted.   Among the local cases, eight are untraceable.   These unlinked cases involve a Ma Tau Kok Detention Centre detainee, a worker at Buddhist Sum Ma Shui Ying Care & Attention Home for the Elderly and a Caritas Lok Yi School student.   At a press briefing this afternoon, Centre for Health Protection Principal Medical & Health Officer Dr Albert Au said: “There was an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases with unknown sources of infection today, and the number of cases with unknown sources fluctuated in the past few days.”   Dr Au said he is worried that silent transmissions in the community, together with a large number of festive gatherings, may bring a surge of new cases.   “We are still worried because, for example, for today we have recorded eight unlinked cases. So there is evidence that there are still quite a number of silent transmissions in the community. Coupled with the large number of gatherings among the local population during the Chinese New Year, it is possible that some of the undetected cases may cause ongoing transmission in the community.   “It is possible that some of the people who have acquired the infection during the gatherings in the Chinese New Year still have not been detected yet. So we need to closely monitor the situation to see if there will be any upsurge in cases in the coming one to two weeks.”   Additionally, seven buildings with one or more new confirmed cases are now covered by the compulsory testing notice.   The Government will set up mobile specimen collection stations at North Point Community Hall, Yee On Centre in Kwun Tong and On Tin Estate in Lam Tin on February 20.   Meanwhile, the service period of the mobile station at Southorn Playground in Wan Chai will be extended to February 22.   For information and health advice on COVID-19, visit the Government's dedicated webpage.
