Testing records checked

The Government today completed a joint enforcement operation at Block 12 of Richland Gardens in Kowloon Bay, which was earlier included in a compulsory testing notice.   The enforcement action was conducted from around 8am to 11am by the Constitutional & Mainland Affairs Bureau together with Police and the Department of Health.   Out of the 269 people whose records were checked, three had failed to comply with the notice. They were issued with a compulsory testing order and a fixed penalty notice of $10,000. http://dlvr.it/SZ0L6k

Comirnaty COVID-19 jabs arrive

A total of 585,000 doses of the Comirnaty vaccine, jointly developed by Fosun Pharma and BioNTech, arrived in Hong Kong today.   Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip and Secretary for Food & Health Prof Sophia Chan inspected the vaccine’s arrival at the airport.   Staff carried out stringent checks and inspections of the vaccine to ensure that it complies with the product specifications and that the transportation process follows the relevant cold-chain requirements.   As the vaccine has to be stored in a freezer at a temperature of -70 degrees Celsius, the Government has placed them in a designated storage facility.   The Government said it will open the online booking system next week for the public to make appointments to receive the Comirnaty vaccine. Detailed arrangements will be announced at a suitable time.    Noting that the Comirnaty vaccine has stringent requirements for cold-chain management and requires proper thawing procedures, the vaccine will be administered at community vaccination centres to ensure their quality and that the vaccination procedures adhere to requirements.   The seven centres operated by the Hospital Authority will open first while other centres will come into operation gradually, it added.   The first batch of the Comirnaty vaccine consists of one million doses. The remaining doses will be transported to Hong Kong in early March.   For information on COVID-19 vaccines and the vaccination programme, visit the Government's dedicated webpage.

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
