District councillors' acts regrettable

The Home Affairs Department today expressed regret over the consumption of alcoholic drinks by four members of the Sham Shui Po District Council (SSPDC) at a meeting yesterday.   Based on online videos and the discussion at the meeting, the four District Council (DC) members were Janet Ng, Kalvin Ho, Eunice Chau and Lawrence Lau. Their consumption of alcoholic drinks at the meeting brought the reputation of the SSPDC into disrepute and failed to fulfil the public's expectation of DC members.   The District Officer (Sham Shui Po) referred to the Sham Shui Po District Council Standing Orders at the meeting, pointing out that a DC member should ensure that his or her conduct must not be such as to bring the DC into disrepute, should not at any time or in any respect do anything which might compromise or impair his or her integrity, impartiality, objectivity or his or her ability to perform his or her duties, and should not place himself or herself in a position which might be cont

55 COVID-19 cases reported

The Centre for Health Protection today announced it is investigating an additional 55 COVID-19 cases, of which 51 are locally transmitted.   Sixteen of the local cases are untraceable, the centre’s Communicable Disease Branch Head Dr Chuang Shuk-kwan said at a press briefing this afternoon.   Dr Chuang pointed out that more than 80 preliminary positive cases have also been detected.   She said: “I understand that quite a few cases are reported from the community testing centre in Yau Ma Tei.   “It is possible that with the compulsory testing, more local residents know about this test and come forward for testing. Hopefully, we can investigate them and stop the spread.   "But of course, the sheer number of cases - so many cases - is a concern because any one of them may cause a major outbreak in the community and a further spread.”   Additionally, Dr Chuang said one of the confirmed local cases is a resident of an elderly care home.   “The elderly person mainly stayed in the home, so we suspect that there may be some silent transmissions in the elderly home.   “Because we have one case, so it’s possible that there may be some other cases later on or that have gone undetected at the moment, so we have put all of them under quarantine in the AsiaWorld-Expo at the present moment.”   For information and health advice on COVID-19, visit the Government's dedicated webpage.
