The new crown pneumonia epidemic in Hong Kong eased, and 33 new cases were confirmed in a single day yesterday (12th), the lowest in the past 28 days. The Director of the Infection and Infectious Diseases Center of the University of Hong Kong, Ho Pak-liang, said on a radio program that the decline in numbers is indeed encouraging, but he is not optimistic, because the proportion of cases with unknown origin is still large.
Russia announced yesterday that it was the first to register the world's first new crown vaccine, named "Sputnik V". Russian President Vladimir Putin also stated that one of his daughters has been vaccinated with the vaccine. He Boliang pointed out that according to Russian data, only 38 adults were recruited to be vaccinated. If vaccine development is in the preliminary stage, in contrast to the extensive clinical trials in European and American countries, more than 10,000 people have been observed for six months, and the figures can give greater confidence.
▼In the third wave, the government has extended the restrictions on gatherings and banned food in the evening market.▼
Promote the strengthening of medical care, hospitals, foreign domestic helper testing
He Boliang stated in "Departure on a Sunny Day" on Commercial Channel that there is still a chain of transmission in the community. There are still cases of in-hospital transmission in Chinese hospitals, showing invisible patients. He specifically mentioned the infection situation in Kwong Wah Hospital and found that some patients were not wearing well Masks, remind patients that they must wear masks indoors, otherwise they may be prosecuted. "People who are infected may be dead. Everyone should do their own responsibilities."
The government is about to launch universal testing. He Bailiang believes that aimless testing is not a good strategy. Because it is not targeted, the possibility of positive testing is very low. It is recommended that the government can ask the frontline staff of the Hospital Authority and the staff of elderly homes to do it every seven days. In one test, he found out whether there were any hidden cases; he also urged the government to complete the FDH dormitory test as soon as possible.

Refers to the Russian vaccine if it is in the early stages
Regarding Russia’s announcement of registered vaccines, He Boliang pointed out that the capitals of various countries hope that their countries will run out as quickly as possible. Russia has recruited 38 adults to vaccinate in June to observe whether there are serious side effects. The first two clinical stages have been completed, and 10,000 to 30,000 people will be recruited for clinical observation in the future. It is believed that the data is extensive to have greater confidence.
