Health chief visits Eastern Hospital

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

Cathay supports outreach jab service

Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip and Secretary for Transport & Housing Frank Chan today visited Cathay Pacific City to view the administering of the BioNTech vaccine.   Around 160 staff of Cathay Pacific Group received the jabs via the Government's outreach vaccination service.   Mr Nip explained that Cathay Pacific has actively supported the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme that listed the aviation industry as a vaccination priority group when it began, adding that the vaccination rate of Cathay’s locally based air crew has reached 80%.   However, he stressed that the Government needs more people’s support on getting vaccinated to enable society to return to normal life.   Mr Nip said he hoped that more enterprises will join hands with the Government in promoting the Early Vaccination for All campaign.   Mr Chan pointed out that up till now, more than 70% of the locally based air crew members of the city’s aviation sector as a whole have received at least one dose of a vaccine.    He noted that the progress is encouraging as the rate is as high as 90% for the locally based pilots of the whole local aviation sector. Even so, he emphasised that it is equally important for everyone in the sector's various positions to be vaccinated.   Mr Chan called on the aviation community to get vaccinated as soon as possible to contribute towards the industry’s recovery and the upholding of Hong Kong’s status as an international aviation hub.   Enterprises and groups can call the hotline for the outreach vaccination service at 3904 1490 for arrangements.

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
