38 teachers commended

Acting Chief Executive Paul Chan presented the Chief Executive’s Award for Teaching Excellence to 15 teachers at the Education Bureau Kowloon Tong Education Services Centre today.   Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung presented the Certificate of Merit to 23 teachers.   Speaking at the ceremony, Mr Chan expressed his heartfelt congratulations to the awarded teachers and thanked them for their dedicated efforts in education.   He encouraged teachers to actively participate in exchange activities with the Mainland and explained that through observation and exchanges, they could explore ways to improve teaching professionalism with outstanding senior teachers on the Mainland.   They can also use these opportunities to strengthen their understanding of the country’s politics, economy, society, history and culture, and then share their knowledge gained with colleagues and students, Mr Chan added.   There was a total of 121 and 104 nominations for the 2019-20 and 2020-21 awards.  

8 imported COVID-19 cases recorded

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating eight additional imported COVID-19 cases, all of which are asymptomatic and had received two doses of either the Sinovac or BioNTech vaccine.   Among them, two cases reside in Hong Kong. One of them is a 60-year-old man who lives at Valiant Park, Mid-Levels, while the other case involves a 43-year-old woman living at Block 6, Peak One, Tai Wai.   They travelled to Kyrgyzstan on August 20 and tested negative in Hong Kong on the day of departure. They returned to the city on September 3 and their specimen collected at Hong Kong International Airport tested positive for COVID-19 with the L452R mutant strain but not the N501Y or E484K mutant genes.   Both of them had received two doses of the BioNTech vaccine.   A total of 66 cases were reported in Hong Kong in the past 14 days, all of which are imported.   For information and health advice on COVID-19, visit the Government's dedicated webpage.
