More HZMB private car quotas set

The governments of Hong Kong and Macau have agreed to increase the regular quotas for Hong Kong cross-boundary non-commercial private cars using the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge to Macau, the Transport Department announced today.   The decision was made to enhance traffic flow between Hong Kong and Macau, better utilising the bridge, the department said.   It will increase the Hong Kong quota by 1,000, following the earlier quota allocation of 1,800 for Hong Kong.   The additional quota will be distributed in two phases from the second quarter.   Half of the additional 1,000 quota allocations is for company applicants and the other half is for individual applicants. The quotas are valid for no more than three years. The eligibility criteria of quota applications remains the same.   Private cars allocated with Hong Kong quotas will be permitted to access the city of Macau multiple times using the bridge.   The Hong Kong quota allotments will be re-allocated upon expiry thro

LeaveHomeSafe app data safe

(To watch the full press briefing with sign language interpretation, click here.)   Secretary for Food & Health Prof Sophia Chan today stressed that the LeaveHomeSafe mobile app will not send people’s data to the Government.   The Government may allow some previously closed premises to reopen and extend dine-in services at restaurants to 10pm from February 18. Patrons will also have to use the app or provide their personal information to keep a record of their whereabouts.   At a press briefing this afternoon, Prof Chan noted that some people are worried about the app’s data privacy.   “The fact is there is no issue of data privacy because the data would just be stored in the person’s phone. There is no platform that collects the data."    Prof Chan added that she is certain that the app will help prevent and control the epidemic if everyone co-operates.
