Govt to enhance securities trading

It is a pleasure to be here with you today, especially after an accident that has reminded me of the importance of staying vigilant even in relatively peaceful times. Continuously enhancing competitiveness despite good business is also a theme I wish to harp on in today's speech.   Some of you may recall that I last spoke to you in November 2018. That was into the second year of my tenure, witnessing the celebration of the 40th anniversary of our nation's reform and opening up, and the consecutive opening of two major pieces of cross-boundary transport infrastructure - the Hong Kong section of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge. All seemed bright and well. And then we all have some frightening memories of what Hong Kong had gone through in the following two years. Few would disagree that it has been a very challenging period for Hong Kong, particularly with the riots in the latter half of 2019 during which some banks were

Temporary hospital opens Feb 26

The Hospital Authority today said North Lantau Hospital Hong Kong Infection Control Centre (HKICC) will open on February 26.   It will mainly accept mild or moderate COVID-19 patients aged between 16 and 65 with appropriate clinical conditions.   Princess Margaret Hospital Associate Consultant (Medicine & Geriatrics) Dr Jacky Chan told reporters at the HKICC media tour ahead of its opening that different categories of patients will be admitted.   “The first category is those new COVID-19 cases from the community, who can be sent here directly from the community. Second, we can receive step-up cases from the AsiaWorld-Expo (AWE). Because nowadays we have a certain amount of patients staying in the AWE requiring further medical assessment, if the HKICC is opened, some of these patients can be transferred here, instead of sending them out to the acute hospitals."   North Lantau Hospital Deputy Hospital Chief Executive Dr Michael Wong explained that the HKICC's laboratory with fully automatic advanced equipment, will conduct COVID-19 tests more effectively and efficiently.   “This machine could process a lot of specimens in a certain period of time. For an eight-hour shift, we could process nearly 1,000 specimens. If we perform it overnight, 24 hours, we could process nearly 4,000 specimens over the day.   “So the throughput is very high. We could perform a lot of testing. We actually have a high demand for testing. Now every patient admitted needs to have COVID-19 screening, so some of these specimens will come here for the testing, not only for HKICC patients.”   Six ward blocks provide 816 isolation beds. In the first phase of opening, 48 isolation beds in Block F are scheduled to receive patients on February 26.
