Civil Aid Service holds parade

The Civil Aid Service (CAS) held the Celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the Establishment of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and CAS 70th Anniversary Parade today at the Police College.   Chief Secretary Chan Kwok-ki officiated at the ceremony and acted as the reviewing officer for the parade.   To demonstrate national identity and patriotic sentiment for the motherland, the CAS has fully adopted from today, the Chinese-style foot drill that requires exacting standards, and demonstrated the drill's protocols for the first time in the parade.   As an auxiliary force under the Security Bureau, the CAS has been honouring the pledge of "provide emergency relief, serve the community" and has been rendering immediate assistance during emergencies to protect Hong Kong citizens.   During the COVID-19 epidemic, the CAS has remained steadfast on the front line of the anti-epidemic operations by rapidly assisting in setting up a number of community isolation faci

HK reports 33 virus cases

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating 33 additional COVID-19 cases, of which 17 are confirmed and 16 are asymptomatic.   The new cases consist of 26 imported ones and seven that are epidemiologically linked with an imported case.   Among them, 28 involve mutant strains, the mutation test results of three cases are pending, while the viral load of the remaining two cases is insufficient for mutation tests. The patients include nine males and 19 females, aged four months to 73.   Details of the seven cases linked to an imported case were announced in the past two days, when the patients tested preliminary positive for COVID-19.   Meanwhile, the Government made a restriction-testing declaration covering three premises this evening due to the detection of preliminary positive cases.   The declaration includes Lee Shun Building, 157-159 Lockhart Road in Wan Chai, Block B, The Crescent, 13 Ho Man Tin Hill Road in Ho Man Tin and Yuk Sing Building, 1-9 Yuk Sau Street in Happy Valley.   Separately, a restriction-testing declaration was made for Mayland Court, 1-7 Shelter Street in Causeway Bay, as the sewage discharged from that building tested positive in sewage tests conducted earlier in the area. It is suspected that there are asymptomatic patients in the building.   People within these specified restricted areas are required to undergo compulsory testing.   A total of 281 positive cases were reported in Hong Kong in the past 14 days. Eighteen of them are epidemiologically linked with imported cases or possibly import-related cases, while the rest are imported.   For information and health advice on COVID-19, visit the Government's dedicated webpage.

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating 124 additional COVID-19 cases. More cases were detected in Kwai Chung Estate. 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
