The spokesman pointed out that since the outbreak of the new crown epidemic, the central government has always attached great importance to the epidemic situation in Hong Kong and the health and safety of Hong Kong compatriots. It has coordinated the arrival of a large number of masks and other anti epidemic materials to Hong Kong, made every effort to ensure the supply of materials for peoples livelihood, alleviate the urgent needs of Hong Kong, and vigorously assist Hong Kong people stranded in the mainland and abroad to return to Hong Kong. In recent years, the epidemic situation in Hong Kong has obviously rebounded, with more than 100 confirmed cases a day for five consecutive days. The outbreak in the community is on the verge of outbreak, and the prevention and control of the epidemic situation in Hong Kong is at a critical juncture. In response to the sharp rebound of the epidemic situation in Hong Kong, the central government has made it clear that it will support Hong Kong to improve its nucleic acid detection capability and assist in the construction of shelter hospital. As long as the SAR needs it, the central government will provide strong assistance in medical materials, medical facilities and equipment. According to the instructions of the central leadership, the National Health Commission also held a special video conference with the governments of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao on July 24 to strengthen technical exchanges and experience sharing.
The spokesman said that after the outbreak of the Xinguan epidemic, China took the lead in the world in the major victory in the fight against the epidemic and quickly realized the orderly recovery of production and life. At a time when the central government and mainland compatriots are concerned about the epidemic situation in Hong Kong and the people of Hong Kong are looking forward to the help of the central government to quickly block the spread of the epidemic from the source, it is shocking and shameless that there are a few people in Hong Kong who ignore the lives and safety of the general public and throw out all kinds of bizarre theories. Some people have no reason to doubt that the relevant practices are not in accordance with the laws and professional codes of Hong Kong, mainland medical staff are unable to communicate in English, and they are full of arrogance and prejudice towards the mainland counterparts; some people, ignoring the huge pressure on the Hong Kong Medical system and front-line medical staff, falsely claim that Hong Kongs medical resources and manpower are sufficient, and there is no need for mainland support Some even said that the mainland medical team will send the gene samples of Hong Kong people to the mainland and that the diagnosis centers of mainland institutions may spread the epidemic, which is a rumor without bottom line. It is obvious that there is a clear political plot in these arguments. In the eyes of some people, the life and health of the general public is not important. It is the most important to create political separation and protect personal interests. Everyone can see this clearly.
The spokesman stressed that saving people is better than fighting fire. The central government will continue to pay close attention to the development of the epidemic in Hong Kong, maintain close communication with the SAR government and further provide all necessary support and assistance as needed by the SAR. It is hoped that the whole society, under the leadership of the chief executive and the SAR government, will work together to fight the epidemic, overcome the difficulties, and win the battle of epidemic prevention and control.
