HK fully co-operates with central govt

The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government today said the central government has the authority and responsibility to improve the city’s electoral system, adding that it will render its full co-operation to the central government.   The Hong Kong SAR Government made the statement in response to the deliberation by the National People's Congress of a draft decision on improving the city's electoral system.   The Hong Kong SAR Government said to ensure the steadfast and successful implementation of "one country, two systems", Hong Kong must always adhere to the principle of "patriots governing Hong Kong".   The principle is fundamental to national sovereignty, security, development interests, as well as the long-term prosperity of Hong Kong, it added.   "Only through ‘patriots governing Hong Kong’ can the central government's overall jurisdiction over the Hong Kong SAR be effectively implemented, the constitutional order as set out

False positive test results probed

The Government said today it has completed the investigation of the false positive virus testing results by private laboratory BGI and requested it to continue to strictly follow the improvement measures to ensure that such an incident will not occur again.   When the Department of Health’s Public Health Laboratory Services Branch conducted confirmatory tests for preliminary positive specimens referred by BGI on January 29, February 1 and 2, it found the COVID-19 testing results of some of these specimens to be negative.   The Hospital Authority arranged new specimens to be collected from these cases for further testing, which also tested negative.   The incident involved 16 false positive results, including eight cases from the Targeted Group Testing Scheme for teaching & non-teaching staff & staff of boarding section of special schools on January 29 and four cases from the compulsory testing arrangement for residents and visitors of Heng Lok House of Tin Heng Estate in Tin Shui Wai on February 1.   The other four cases pertained to specimens collected from a mobile testing station and a community testing centre.   The laboratory has conducted a thorough investigation into the root cause leading to false positive results in accordance with the Government's request, and submitted to the Department of Health on February 11 a report examining the potential areas of lapses, including human error, reagents carryover or contamination and environmental contamination as well as the corrective and improvement measures taken.   The laboratory adopted additional confirmatory tests on preliminary positive specimens as one of the corrective and improvement measures from February 4. It was noted that no further false positive results have been detected from BGI since then.
