According to Hong Kongs Star Island Network, 123 new confirmed cases have been reported in Hong Kong. Nearly half of the confirmed cases in Hong Kong are of unknown origin, with more than 100 confirmed cases for three consecutive days. When asked when the epidemic situation in Hong Kong would peak, Zhang Zhujun said that the trend of the epidemic was serious and it was still worrying, but she saw that many people were still outside. Zhang Zhujun said that the medical treatment was already difficult to bear, and the hospitals reception capacity had reached its limit. She was worried that quarantine and isolation were useless, and called on the public to stay at home in the next one to two weeks to reduce social activities.

Medical staff in Shanghai and other places have been instructed to make all preparations for Hong Kong. As soon as an order is given, the medical staff who have accumulated experience in the fight against the epidemic will set out in full gear to help Hong Kong.

Lin Zheng asks for mainland medical support? Hong Kong Nurses Association declared against

According to the observer network, the new epidemic situation in Hong Kong continues to deteriorate, and medical resources are on the verge of collapse. The Hong Kong Business Daily reported that the chief executive, Mrs Carrie Lam, asked the central government for help and coordinated the mainland medical staff to come to Hong Kong to provide emergency assistance.

The Hong Kong Nursing Association issued a statement on the 23rd, saying that it was not in line with the relevant provisions of Hong Kong. The reason given by Cai Jian, President of the Hong Kong Medical Association, is even more amusing: Hong Kong doctors and nurses communicate in English, while the mainland speaks Mandarin and writes simplified characters.

The Hong Kong Business Daily said that as early as 14 this month, the Hong Kong Federation of trade unions had made an appointment with Mrs. Lam and suggested that the government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) should seek assistance from the central government to speed up the nationwide virus detection work. However, Lin Zheng responded positively to the proposal, preferring to seek the assistance of the central government to send professional medical personnel to Hong Kong.

According to reports, the use of ICU Wards in many hospitals in Hong Kong is close to 100%, or even more than 100%. At one time, there was only one bed left in the ICU ward of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. The hospital had to move patients with stable conditions to other hospitals.

Hong Kong government official: it is normal that there is close communication between the two places

In response to the central governments plan to coordinate the emergency support of mainland medical staff to Hong Kong, the Secretary for food and health, Mr. Chen Zhaoshi, said at a press conference on the 22nd that the Bureau has been closely linked with the mainland on the epidemic situation. Recently, the epidemic situation in Hong Kong has changed dramatically and has become more severe. The central government is very concerned about it and has communicated with the SAR government to understand the latest situation and whether it is necessary to follow up Assistance, emphasizing that close communication between the two places is normal.

Mr Chan stressed that Hong Kong has been doing its best to increase the amount of virus detection. However, due to manpower and machinery, the amount of detection is limited. At present, there are private laboratories to assist, two of which are from the mainland. She believed that it would be very helpful for Hong Kong to understand the overall epidemic situation.

Hong Kong Nurses Association: against

Novel coronavirus pneumonia was issued by the Hongkong Nursing Association on 23 July. It was reported that the chief executive had been asked to help the central authorities because of the worsening of the new crown pneumonia in Hongkong, and coordinated the mainlands medical services to provide emergency assistance. The Hong Kong Nurses Association was shocked by the rumors.

The Hong Kong Nurses Association believes that both local and overseas trained nurses must comply with the established procedures, requirements and requirements of the Hong Kong Nursing authority and be issued with a valid practising certificate before they can engage in professional nursing work in Hong Kong.

The Hong Kong Nurses Association strongly believes that the provision of medical emergency assistance by domestic medical staff in Hong Kong does not comply with the provisions of Hong Kong laws and professional codes, nor does it accurately provide nursing services suitable for local professional standards.

The statement also said that the Hong Kong Nurses Association had sent a letter to the chief executive urging the SAR government to ensure that all medical staff practising in Hong Kong must comply with the existing statutory regulation and registration system before they can engage in the nursing profession in Hong Kong..

President of the Hong Kong Medical Association: we speak English and they speak Mandarin

The Hong Kong Society held a press conference today. In response to reports that mainland doctors and nurses are coming to Hong Kong to help fight the epidemic, Cai, President of the Hong Kong Medical Association, insisted that all trained doctors in Hong Kong had worked in the ha, and communicated with other doctors in English in terms of medical records and medicines. On the contrary, mainland doctors and nurses spoke Mandarin and wrote simplified Chinese characters, fearing that chaos would be caused once they came to Hong Kong He said that if the mainland doctors and nurses only went to the shelter hospital to work, he would not express strong opposition (if the remaining shelter hospital did not have to do it, but it was such a fierce statement that I did not talk about overmy dead body).

Cai Jians photos from Hong Kong media

It is worth noting that Cai Jians reasons are very similar to those of the Hong Kong Independence group, the staff front of the hospital authority, which opposed the arrival of mainland doctors and nurses in Hong Kong. Ha staff front said on the 22nd that clinical records and reports of mainland patients were written in simplified Chinese. In general, the medical staff trained in Hong Kong use English as their learning language and Cantonese and English as their working communication languages. They believe that the cultural and linguistic differences between the two places have resulted in communication barriers, which make Hong Kong medical staff waste time communicating with the so-called experienced team, and even delay the treatment time of patients..

Moreover, in the early stage of the epidemic, the staff front of the Hospital Authority launched thousands of medical strikes in Hong Kong, demanding that the Hong Kong government completely close customs and completely cut off contact with the mainland. Affected by the strike, at that time, many public hospitals in Hong Kong could only provide limited outpatient services. Chief executive Lin Zheng solemnly pointed out that anyone who thinks that these extreme means can force the SAR government or the HA to do something that we should not do rationally, or that the public interest is harmful and useless, will not succeed.

According to the Hong Kong grand public network, the oppositions obsession with complete closure is a false proposition, which is morally unjustifiable and can not be done in reality. It is fundamentally unreasonable. To coerce the SAR government to kneel low by means of escalation strike is actually to exploit the well-being of patients, increase the pressure of colleagues and damage the overall interests of Hong Kong. As the saying goes in Hong Kong, when you are ill, you will be killed. The opposition took advantage of the epidemic and gambled with the SAR Government on the rights and interests of the patients to help the epidemic. Passers-by could see the heart of Sima Zhao, who was afraid that the world would not be in chaos.
