According to a preliminary analysis, the cause of death for nine patients was related to COVID-19, while that of the remaining 11 patients was unrelated.   It also registered eight more critical cases, bringing the number of patients in critical condition to 93.   Separately, to align with the Government’s cancellation of issuing isolation orders from tomorrow, the authority will, starting from the same day, announce at 8.30am and 1pm the information of general out-patient clinics (GOPC) quota reserved for COVID-19

Anti-terror exercise concluded

The Inter-departmental Counter Terrorism Unit conducted an anti-terrorism exercise at the West Kowloon Station of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link today.   The unit co-ordinated with an aerial flight patrol of the Government Flying Service, helping Police pursue a wanted vehicle.   The exercise simulated an operation against terrorists who opened fire towards a crowd. The terrorists also attempted to use a chemical, biological, radioactive and nuclear device outside the West Kowloon Station. Police arrested the culprits.   The exercise aimed to test and enhance departments' capabilities in dealing with terrorism-related intelligence and responding to different forms of terrorist attacks.   The unit's Police Senior Superintendent Leung Wai-ki told the media today that although public order had basically been restored in the past 12 months, several violent incidents around July 1 this year illustrated that some local radicals had not abandoned their extremist pursuits.   Mr Leung pointed out that the overall terrorist threat level in Hong Kong remains moderate and there is no specific intelligence suggesting that Hong Kong will be subject to any terrorist attack.   “In order to ensure we are fully prepared to respond or deal with any kind or any format of a terrorist incident in Hong Kong, all enforcement agencies under our Inter-departmental Counter Terrorism Unit will conduct regular counter-terrorism exercises or other emergency drills in accordance with the latest global or local situation.”   About 300 officers from the Police Force, Government Flying Service, Immigration Department, Correctional Services Department, Customs & Excise Department and Fire Services Department took part in the exercise.   The Government Laboratory and the Mass Transit Railway Corporation also assisted in the exercise.   The unit promotes the message of Spot & Report among the public, stressing that tragedy could often be avoided if local communities provide timely useful information to law enforcement agencies.

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
