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

Vaccine misinformation rejected

Chief Executive Carrie Lam today condemned those who are trying to sabotage the Government’s anti-epidemic efforts by spreading misinformation about COVID-19 vaccines.   Mrs Lam made the statement when speaking to reporters after receiving her second COVID-19 jab this morning.   “I would condemn a very small minority of people who try to sabotage our efforts by going the other way - so they are spreading fake news, misinformation and rumours on social media and also through other means.   “Especially when these people are health professionals, I am extremely disappointed, because at the end of the day if Hong Kong has a major outbreak again, the people who suffer will be our healthcare professionals, especially those working in the Hospital Authority's facilities.”   The Chief Executive also pointed out the Government has been transparent in providing information to the public concerning its vaccination programme.   “As far as the confidence of the people in receiving COVID-19 vaccinations, I think transparency and full disclosure will help boost confidence, and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government will spare no effort in raising the transparency in providing as much data as possible to the people of Hong Kong. We are now doing this on a daily basis.   “I would appeal to all to look at this issue in a scientific and objective manner and join the government vaccination programme as soon as possible.”
