Alfred Sit visits health code posts

Secretary for Innovation & Technology Alfred Sit today visited mobile support stations set up at Mass Transit Railway stations to ascertain how government outreach teams are assisting citizens to apply for the Hong Kong Health Code.   The Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) has arranged such teams at various MTR stations daily from 9am to 6pm to help those in need of registering for a Hong Kong Health Code account as well as downloading or updating the LeaveHomeSafe mobile app.   Mr Sit toured the mobile support stations at the MTR stations in Tai Po Market, Ngau Tau Kok and North Point where he sought people's views on the outreach service.   "We understand some members of the public are not very familiar with digital technologies and may need support from others and learn the skills,” Mr Sit said.   “Various bureaus and departments are working on it and have solicited community support to foster the Hong Kong spirit of mutual care and assistance in fighting the virus together," he added.   The Home Affairs Bureau had earlier invited the OGCIO to hold briefings for district and clansman associations in addition to six charity groups on the operation of the Hong Kong Health Code system.   The Home Affairs Department also distributed publicity leaflets to encourage citizens to register for a Hong Kong Health Code account.   The other MTR stations in which mobile support stations have been established are Siu Hong, Tung Chung, Tsing Yi, Kwai Fong, Kai Tak, Tiu Keng Leng and Wong Chuk Hang.   The number of mobile support stations will be increased to cover 25 MTR stations in the next phase, with 15 starting services in early January.   They will be set up at the MTR stations in Long Ping, Sheung Shui, Wu Kai Sha, Tai Wai, Tsuen Wan West, Nam Cheong, Hung Hom, Kowloon, Prince Edward, Kowloon Tong, Wong Tai Sin, Ho Man Tin, Sai Ying Pun, Wan Chai and Shau Kei Wan.

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
