CS attends anti-epidemic meeting

The second meeting on the anti-epidemic work of the Mainland and Hong Kong was held in Shenzhen. Good progress was made in the meeting on exploring the resumption of quarantine-free travel between the Mainland and Hong Kong in a gradual and orderly manner.   The meeting was hosted by Hong Kong & Macao Affairs Office of the State Council Deputy Director Huang Liuquan. Chief Secretary John Lee led Hong Kong Special Administrative Region representatives to attend the meeting.   Mr Huang said that, since the first meeting on the anti-epidemic work of the Mainland and Hong Kong on September 26, the Hong Kong SAR Government has actively maintained close communication and liaison with the central government's relevant authorities, and strengthened the epidemic prevention and control measures in Hong Kong with the dynamic zero infection goal and guarding against the importation of cases and the resurgence of local infection, in turn achieving consistency with the epidemic prevention and control strategy of the central authorities.   He affirmed the Hong Kong SAR Government's work in this regard.   The National Health Commission experts briefed the meeting on their comments and observations during their recent visit to Hong Kong. Both sides had a detailed and constructive discussion.   The Mainland experts affirmed that Hong Kong has strengthened a series of anti-epidemic measures and fostered a favourable environment for resumption of quarantine-free travel. They considered that Hong Kong has basically achieved the conditions of resumption of quarantine-free travel.   Both sides agreed to submit reports on the anti-epidemic measures and the implementation plan of resumption of quarantine-free travel. Further exchange of views would be conducted if needed.   Mr Lee thanked the central government at the meeting for its care and great importance attached to the aspiration of the public for the resumption of quarantine-free travel between the Mainland and Hong Kong, as well as the great importance attached to the request by the Chief Executive about resumption of travel.   He thanked Hong Kong & Macao Affairs Office of the State Council for immediately and positively pressing ahead with the resumption of travel, and thanked the National Health Commission for its active participation not only in providing useful comments but also in paying a four-day visit to Hong Kong to learn about the city's anti-epidemic measures.   He also thanked the Guangdong Provincial Government, the Shenzhen Municipal Government and Zhuhai Municipal Government for their support towards the resumption of travel.   Both sides agreed to set up task forces to study the interface, code conversion and operation issues of the health code systems of Hong Kong and the Mainland; and the management of and co-operation as well as joint prevention and control mechanism at boundary control points, ensuring a smooth and orderly operation with effective risk management.

Railway settlement exceeds limit

The construction works of a relocation project in Kowloon have been suspended after a settlement monitoring checkpoint exceeded the limit, the Government said today.   The project relocates supporting operational facilities of Tsim Sha Tsui Fire Station Complex, Fire Services Club and other fire services accommodations to To Wah Road in Kowloon.   The Government explained that the readings recorded in a settlement monitoring checkpoint installed inside the railway tunnel between Kowloon Station and Olympic Station of the MTR Tung Chung Line had reached 20.27mm on September 7. The preset trigger level for works suspension is 20mm.   For the sake of prudence, the Mass Transit Railway Corporation suspended relevant works within the railway protection area on the same day.   The Buildings Department and the Architectural Services Department deployed staff to inspect the affected railway tunnel and confirmed that it is structurally safe.   The Electrical & Mechanical Services
