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

3 imported COVID-19 cases identified

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating three additional imported COVID-19 cases involving patients who arrived from Israel, Japan and Qatar.   One of them, a 36-year-old woman, lives in Tung Shun Hing Building, 22 Chi Kiang Street in To Kwa Wan and received two doses of the BioNTech vaccine in June and July in Hong Kong.   She tested negative in Hong Kong on August 21 and travelled to Nigeria on August 22. She returned on September 10 by flight QR818, and her specimen collected upon arrival tested positive for COVID-19 and carried the L452R mutant strain.   She works at 28/F, Lee & Man Commercial Centre in North Point, and was last there on August 21.   Epidemiological investigation and contact tracing are ongoing. As a precaution, the building where the patient resided and worked during the incubation period have been included in a compulsory testing notice.
