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

Jab stations at 4 more hospitals set

The Government today announced that it will set up COVID-19 vaccination stations in Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital, Tseung Kwan O Hospital, Caritas Medical Centre and Prince of Wales Hospital starting October 18.   The move aims to enable patients visiting the hospital for follow-up appointments and visitors to receive the BioNTech vaccination without prior booking.   In addition to the vaccination stations in Queen Mary Hospital, Queen Elizabeth Hospital and Tuen Mun Hospital, which came into service last month, the number of vaccination stations will increase to seven.   Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip said the vaccination rate for elderly people has increased recently. However, given the threat posed by mutant strains, their vaccination rate should be raised further as they have a comparatively higher risk of falling seriously ill and dying brought by COVID-19 infection.   The Government set up vaccination stations operated by medical organisations in three public hospitals as a pilot scheme.   Mr Nip noted that in the past two weeks, an average of about 200 people received vaccination at the vaccination stations every day.   After an evaluation, the Government decided to expand the scheme to enable more seniors to receive vaccination when they have their follow-up medical consultation at specialist out-patient clinics in hospitals, he added.   The vaccination stations operate from 10am to 7pm on weekdays except public holidays and the last vaccination session is conducted at 6.30pm.   Arrangements will be made for people being vaccinated to have their second dose injection at the same vaccination station or another community vaccination centre.   For those who opt for the Sinovac vaccine, they will be referred to a nearby community vaccination centre.

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
