Testing compliance check done

The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise and enforcement operation for 35-37 Nam Cheong Street in Sham Shui Po finished today with no positive COVID-19 cases found.   It made a restriction-testing declaration yesterday evening, requiring people in the specified area to stay in their premises and undergo mandatory testing. About 50 people were tested.   In the subsequent enforcement operation, about 20 people’s test records were checked. No one was found to have not received compulsory testing.   Government staff also visited around 20 households in the area, of which five did not answer the door. Such households are urged to contact the Government promptly to arrange testing.   According to the compulsory testing notice issued yesterday, those who had stayed in 35-37 Nam Cheong Street within a specified period for more than two hours must get tested by tomorrow even if they were not in the restricted areas when the declarations took effect. http://dlvr.it/S

No fees for loan scheme

Banks participating in the 100% Personal Loan Guarantee Scheme will aid loan applicants without levying any application or handling fee, and borrowers should not make applications via a third party, HKMC Insurance said today.   It made the statement in response to a news report about some people claiming to help those who are unemployed make applications for the scheme using false instruments at a handling fee.   Participating banks will try their best to assist applicants, it said, adding that borrowers who pay any fees to a third party will suffer a direct financial loss.   The statement said banks reviewing loan applications will exercise professional expertise, judgement and care to conduct customer due diligence and verify borrowers' eligibility. HKMC Insurance will also conduct checks and strive to ensure approved applications meet the requirements.   Any suspected illicit behaviour such as producing false declarations or using false instruments will be reported to law enforcement agencies, it noted.   Call participating banks or the loan guarantee scheme hotline at 2536 0392 for enquiries.
