However, she said frankly that if the new coronavirus epidemic is not well controlled, the relevant administrative work will be difficult to carry out, so the epidemic prevention and anti epidemic is still the top priority of the government.
Since the outbreak of the epidemic, the government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region has launched various epidemic prevention measures. Lin Zheng yuee said that at present, the public finance is tight. After the budget allocation and the launch of three rounds of anti epidemic fund, the SAR government has spent HK $310 billion and is expected to have a large deficit. As a result, many new measures are expected to provide better services without increasing the consumption of resources through reform, streamlining and synergy. At the same time, she revealed that there will be some measures to win support in Beijing and Shenzhen in the new policy address.
Looking at the world, the mainland is the region with the best epidemic control and the fastest economic recovery in the world. Therefore, integrating into the overall national development situation is crucial for Hong Kong to get out of its economic predicament. She said.
Therefore, she stressed that the primary task of the SAR government at present is to curb the spread of the virus, and virus detection is still the key. In order to achieve the goal of necessary inspection and full inspection, the SAR government will arrange compulsory testing for three groups as soon as possible, including people with symptoms, staff of residential care homes and taxi drivers.
At the same time, she announced that the SAR government will set up bottle collectors in 121 post offices and plan to extend it to MTR stations. The returned bottles will be maintained in 47 out-patient centers of the ha. Five community testing centers will be added as soon as this weekend. It is understood that at present, 100000 samples can be tested every day in Hong Kong. Mrs Lam revealed that she would instruct the Creative Technology Bureau to study how to combine the test results with health codes to facilitate customs clearance in the future.
On November 16, the SAR government launched the safe travel mobile phone program, known as the Hong Kong version of Health Code, to store user travel records and track close contacts when necessary. In order to eliminate users privacy concerns, the program is voluntary and self recording. At present, more than 6000 public and private venues have participated in the scheme, and 118000 taxis can be used directly.
In case tracking, the SAR Government spare no effort, but still needs full cooperation from the public. Even with the assistance of supercomputers and police, the difficulty of tracking is beyond imagination, and some people may refuse to disclose their whereabouts or forget. She said the safe travel mobile phone program launched by the SAR government will be arranged for designated places such as restaurants and will be enforced for those who enter the places if necessary.
As for social distance measures, Ms Lam said she would close indoor spaces and places where people gathered without masks.
