Secretary for Health Prof Lo Chung-mau today visited Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital to get an update on the service of public hospitals.        He toured the hospital’s specialist outpatient clinic, medical ward, accident and emergency department and hyperbaric oxygen therapy centre, followed by a meeting with its management and frontline healthcare staff to learn about the service demands and manpower deployment.        Prof Lo said: "Having gone through the anti-epidemic work in the past three years, Hong Kong is on the road to full normalcy. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to all healthcare staff for their efforts in performing duties and working tirelessly amidst immense work pressure to safeguard the city's healthcare system.”            Noting that Hong Kong will see a sharp rise in the number of travellers with the full resumption of normal travel with the Mainland, Prof Lo said the Government will closely monitor the development of the CO

Earth Science Gallery opens Apr 23

The Science Museum’s new Earth Science Gallery will open tomorrow, marking the museum’s 30th anniversary and supporting Earth Day.   The gallery features about 30 sets of interactive exhibits, models and installations for visitors to better understand the causes of natural phenomena.   Comprising four areas, the new permanent gallery guides visitors through the secrets underneath the Earth’s crust, and illustrates how its internal and external forces lead to drastic natural phenomena such as volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis and typhoons.   Science Museum Director Paulina Chan recommended that visitors try out the typhoon simulator to experience the intensity of winds reaching approximately 120km per hour.   Ms Chan also said the Earthquake Preparedness Agency computer game could provide people with knowledge that may help save their lives.   "There are a lot of scenarios, you need to choose the right things to do to protect yourself in an earthquake, it will be a very good tip for you."   Hong Kong’s breathtaking geology is also featured at the gallery through its display of rock specimens from different geological ages, such as samples from the hexagonal rock columns in the High Island region, part of the Hong Kong UNESCO Global Geopark.   Ms Chan hopes the gallery will help visitors understand more about nature.   “Learning Earth’s history is always fascinating. I think this gallery will let visitors know about the science of the Earth.   “This kind of knowledge can help us understand nature and also let us know how to protect our nature, our blue planet.”   Visitors to the museum will need to use hand sanitiser and will be subject to temperature checks before admission. They also need to wear their own masks.   Children under 12 will only be allowed to enter the venue when accompanied by an adult.   Call 2732 3232 for enquiries.

Legal officer changes proposed

The Government has proposed to amend the law to allow legal officers of the Department of Justice to be appointed as a senior counsel.   At a media session after attending a Legislative Council meeting today, Secretary for Justice Teresa Cheng explained the rationale behind the Government's proposal.   She said: “Why is it that my colleagues in the Department of Justice - who by their qualifications are solicitors but are actually arguing very well and very efficiently with great eloquence and efficacy in the Court of Final Appeal - are not being recognised when they are actually even better than their counterparts? That has always been something that sometimes troubles me.   “And for that reason, I have always been thinking about how we are going to overcome that problem.   “Now, what really triggers my determination to take this further forward is when one of our Deputy Directors of Public Prosecutions, Vinci Lam, took silk on May 29.   “That really showed that the form
