The two committees under the Centre for Health Protection also recommended that BNT162b2 supplied by Fosun/BioNTech and AZD1222 supplied by AstraZeneca should be gathered in Hong Kong, and that residents and employees living in institutions should be vaccinated first.

As for the CoronaVac vaccine provided by Kexing to Hong Kong, discussions will be held after the other party submits a report.

According to the news, the government will seal off the designated inspection area in Yau Ma Tei within days and implement the "foot ban" that has been rumored.

Some district councillors are concerned that even the number of residents in the "Three No Buildings" cannot be grasped and is difficult to monitor, and it is estimated that the residents who are willing to avoid quarantine will gradually move out of the "return work, do not return", and are concerned about some of the designated inspection areas in Yau Ma Tei Residential building environmental samples are positive and should be evacuated instead of being included in the "foot ban".

[12:43] The new crown pneumonia epidemic has lasted for one year, and the Kexing vaccine developed in the Mainland has not yet provided sufficient data for the approval of the government vaccine advisory expert committee.

The Secretary for Food and Health, Chen Zhaoshi, said in an interview with Hong Kong and Taiwan that the government has not given up on the procurement of Kexing vaccines and revealed that it is discussing procurement matters with the fourth vaccine supplier, but indicated that it will not be a vaccine developed by Sinopharm.

As for the medical staff who went on strike last year and asked the government to close the customs, Chen Zhaoshi pointed out that the government closed the border and decided not to make concessions to the strike. He described the government's policy as "slow talk for everyone to know."

Chen Zhaoshi denied concession to the medical care strike to negotiate the purchase of the fourth vaccine non-Chinese medicine research and development

[11:45] The new crown pneumonia epidemic has lasted for a year. The Director of the Food and Health Bureau, Chen Zhaoshi, revealed in an interview with Radio Hong Kong that crew members currently exempt from quarantine will need to be quarantined at designated hotels for 14 days after arriving in Hong Kong.

During the interview, she did not disclose when the relevant arrangements will be tightened, only saying that she was embarrassed to the crew.

Chen Zhaoshi admitted that the crew will have to be quarantined for 14 days due to the presence of multiple variant viruses

[11:40] It is understood that the government will seal off the designated inspection area in Yau Ma Tei within the day, that is to say, implement the long-rumored ban on foot.

Each building will be guarded by government personnel to check and ensure that those who leave the building have a negative certificate.
