HK pivotal in bay area I&T drive

I am very pleased to attend today's ceremony to commend 50 outstanding students, who are the recipients of the 2020 and 2021 Innovation and Technology Scholarship Award. My heartfelt congratulations to all of them.   I know that they come from five Hong Kong universities, and they are pursuing a great variety of degrees related to STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) as well as environmental management, physiotherapy, fashion and textiles. Whatever their future endeavours, I am confident that they will enjoy rewarding careers and lives, while helping Hong Kong take its place as an international hub for innovation and technology (I&T).   As I am sure we all agree, talent is crucially important to our achieving the objective of developing an international innovation and technology hub. And we are blessed with a good pool of local talents, including young men and women here today. More proof is that in March this year, at the International Exhibition of Inve

1 COVID-19 case found

(To watch the full press briefing with sign language interpretation, click here.)   The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating one additional COVID-19 case involving a 29-year-old Indonesian domestic helper.   She arrived in Hong Kong on April 25 and stayed in a quarantine hotel until May 16. After she left the hotel, she stayed with her employer until May 20.   Centre for Health Protection Communicable Disease Branch Head Dr Chuang Shuk-kwan told a press briefing today that the helper is being considered as a possible local case with an unknown source of infection.   “The positive antibodies signify that she had been infected for more than 10 days or longer.   “So it is very likely that she had been infected while she was in Indonesia but it went unnoticed.   “Of course, there are other possibilities such that she may have acquired the infection at the airport or on the plane.   “On the aeroplane, we found that there were another three cases on the same flight, but they did not sit close to her.   “For the hotel, we have not found any other cases who stayed on the same floor. We check the staff weekly and the last test was on May 18. They were all negative.”   Dr Chuang also reported that there are less than five preliminary positive COVID-19 cases, including a locally infected one involving a 39-year-old Indonesian domestic helper.   “She stayed in a temporary residence provided by her agent and in the same flat there were four other domestic helpers. They will be treated as close contacts and put under quarantine and tested. So far, we have not heard of any positive case among them.   “It would be treated as an unlinked local case at the moment.”   Dr Chuang said if this case is confirmed, it would signify there are still hidden transmission chains in the community.   For information and health advice on COVID-19, visit the Government's dedicated webpage.
