RMB stock trading backed

Secretary for Financial Services & the Treasury Christopher Hui today expressed his gratitude to various listed issuers in Hong Kong for their support to the proposal of setting up a renminbi (RMB) stock trading counter.   Mr Hui stated that further to the help rendered by the Legislative Council Panel on Financial Affairs regarding the Government's proposed measures to promote the issuance and trading of RMB stocks in Hong Kong and enhance the trading mechanism, a number of listed issuers have also backed the proposal.   Such listed issuers will actively explore the feasibility of setting up a new RMB trading counter for their issued shares.   Mr Hui explained that listed issuers who indicated their support today include Hang Seng Index constituent stocks with promising turnover.   “Their participation is a vote of confidence to the development of RMB securities in Hong Kong, which will be conducive to our promotion work to other issuers, enabling Hong Kong to graduall

5 imported COVID-19 cases recorded

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating five additional imported COVID-19 cases, two of which involve mutant strains, while the viral load of one case is insufficient for a mutation test and the mutation test results of the two remaining cases are pending.   Among the patients, aged 10 to 77, three of them arrived from Pakistan while the rest arrived from the US.   One patient was confirmed infected with COVID-19 during quarantine and the others tested positive upon arrival at the airport.   One of the new cases involves a 54-year-old male patient who lives at Graceful Mansion, Siena Two in Discovery Bay. He received two doses of the BioNTech vaccine on March 10 and April 8 in Hong Kong.   The patient is a cargo flight crew member. His test conducted on October 19 in Hong Kong was negative.   He left Hong Kong on October 21 for the US and returned to Hong Kong on October 25 by flight CX075. His specimen collected upon arrival at the airport tested positive for COVID-19. He has been asymptomatic.   As a prudent measure, the places where the patient resided and visited in Hong Kong during the incubation period have been included in a compulsory testing notice, the centre noted.   As Emirates flight EK384 from Dubai and Bangkok arrived on October 25 with three passengers on board confirmed with COVID-19, the Department of Health has invoked the Prevention & Control of Disease (Regulation of Cross-boundary Conveyances & Travellers) Regulation to prohibit the landing of Emirates flights from Dubai and Bangkok from October 27 to November 9.   A total of 58 cases were reported in Hong Kong in the past 14 days, all of which are imported.   For information and health advice on COVID-19, visit the Government's dedicated webpage.

There are also more than 70 preliminary positive cases.   Among the newly reported cases, 33 are related to Kwai Chung Estate, bringing the total number of positive and preliminary positive cases in the estate to 276.   One more positive case was found after an earlier confirmed case occurred at Glory Court, Tsuen Wan Garden, both of them live in units 5 but on two different floors. The centre has co-ordinated with related government departments and conducted an inspection today.    It was preliminarily considered that vertical transmission of virus via pipes is involved.   The centre will issue quarantine orders to residents of unit 5 on all floors of the building who resided there during the incubation period of the relevant cases and transfer them to a quarantine facility.   As it is possible that virus might be ejected from the open
