SZ port virus testing streamlined

The Government today announced that it has enhanced its rapid nucleic acid testing capacity and will launch an online booking arrangement within next week for the special nucleic acid testing service at Shenzhen Bay Port.   This will facilitate travellers’ trip planning and allow them to depart through Shenzhen Bay Control Point in an orderly manner, the Government said in a press release.   Under the upcoming booking arrangement, travellers must first obtain a quota at a Shenzhen quarantine hotel and then reserve a timeslot for the special nucleic acid test on the day of departure through an online booking system. They should arrive at the Shenzhen Bay Control Point for the special nucleic acid test as scheduled. Those without bookings will not be allowed to enter the control point for nucleic acid testing and immigration clearance.   The arrangement will help further shorten the processing time of the special nucleic acid test, reduce the waiting time and refine the crowd management at Shenzhen Bay Control Point, the Government said.   To avoid overcrowding, the Government urged travellers not to use the Shenzhen Bay Port during peak hours from 9am to noon. It will also announce the daily peak hours and expected waiting time at the port for travellers’ reference.   Before implementing online booking, the Government will consider adopting crowd control measures as appropriate if there is overcrowding, it added.

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
