As the new pneumonia epidemic slowed down, Hong Kong recorded many more new local cases, involving at least 15 people in the Luquanlou group of Leyuan Village. Liang Zhuowei, dean of the Hong Kong University School of Medicine, who is also a consultant for the government’s anti-epidemic experts, stated today (2nd) that whether the epidemic prevention policy should be tightened depends on the trend of the group’s expansion. Before the situation, it is not appropriate to relax the border defense and social distance measures.
He believes that the timetable for the resumption of classes can be maintained at this stage. Since no youth groups are involved, students cannot stay out of class for a long time, but it must be properly arranged and pay attention to whether there will be invisible transmission. The large-scale outbreak after the resumption of classes in Israel should be cited For reference.

There is another local infection case in Luquan Building, Liyuan Village, and the government announced that the restriction order will be further extended by 14 days. When asked how to balance the rights of Hong Kong people to protest, Liang responded that he always believed that science and politics should not be confused.
Liang Zhuowei, the founding director of the WHO Collaborating Center for Epidemiology and Control of Infectious Diseases, and Gao Benen, another director, announced the results of the study. Liang said that the new coronavirus has a "super spread effect." After analyzing more than 1,000 confirmed cases in Hong Kong, it was found that 20% of the people with the virus will infect 80% of the patients. It is necessary to speed up and strengthen the detection and quarantine measures to effectively control the epidemic. He suggested that the number of public and private inspections could be increased and the daily inspection target could be increased to over 10,000.
He continued to explain that the HA and the Department of Health are currently conducting 5,000 tests, and the two major medical schools are also providing assistance, which is expected to rise to 7,000. However, he believes that the effect is still limited and believes that there is still room for testing in the private market. He also pointed out that it is necessary to regularly test people who are exposed to high history and have close contact in the community with asymptomatic people in high-risk groups, including elders or staff with disabilities, as well as employees in the retail and transportation industries.
He also reminded that people are now wearing masks, but do not think it is a panacea, and urge the public not to let go for a while.
