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

Older adults advised to get 4th jab

People aged 60 or above are advised to receive the fourth dose of a COVID-19 vaccine at least three months after their last dose, the Government said today.   Considering the fact that the majority of local fatal cases in the fifth wave of the COVID-19 epidemic involved citizens aged 60 or above, the Scientific Committee on Vaccine Preventable Diseases and the Scientific Committee on Emerging & Zoonotic Diseases, joined by the Chief Executive’s expert advisory panel, gave such advice after a meeting yesterday.   The same principle applies to people aged 60 or above who have recovered from COVID-19.   The advisers also re-examined the 21-day interval between the first and second doses of the BioNTech vaccine for immunocompromised children and adolescents and had no objection for recovered people to receive their next vaccine dose at an interval of no less than 28 days after recovery, for personal reasons like studying abroad or overseas travel.   Recovered people without a history of COVID-19 vaccination can be vaccinated one month after recovery.   Meanwhile, for administrative convenience and achieving better coverage, the advisers had no objection to providing COVID-19 vaccines with seasonal influenza or other childhood immunisation ones on the same visit under informed consent. This principle would apply to similar settings including residential care homes.   Separately, for people who are partially vaccinated outside Hong Kong with locally unavailable COVID-19 vaccines on the List of COVID-19 Vaccines Recognised for Specified Purposes and under the World Health Organization’s Emergency Use Listing, the experts urged them to complete their vaccination course with vaccines using the same platform or any suitable locally available alternative at least four weeks after the previous dose according to their needs.   Those who have fully or partially been vaccinated with vaccines not on the aforesaid lists are advised to start over with vaccines available in Hong Kong following the local recommended schedule, the experts added.

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
