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

Lockdown rumours denied

The Government said it has absolutely no plan to place Hong Kong under lockdown at midnight and prohibit people from departing or entering the city, or forbid them from dining in restaurants after 6pm.   In a statement of clarification today, the Government condemned those who had caused public panic by spreading such rumours online and via WhatsApp. It also stressed that law enforcement agencies will take serious action if criminal elements are involved.   During a press briefing last Friday, the Secretary for Food & Health, together with the Director of Health and the Hospital Authority Chief Executive gave updates on the latest epidemic situation and outlined the tightened measures to be taken, the Government pointed out.   Moreover, it emphasised that it will pursue such anti-epidemic actions rigorously and resolutely.   “The Government has all along been transparent with its epidemic control measures and will make announcements as early as possible. Any unhelpful speculation or spreading of rumours is counterproductive in the fight against the epidemic by the Government and the people of Hong Kong.”   The public should stay vigilant against rumours and pay attention to information released by the Government to avoid being misled, the Government advised.
