The fourth wave of the new crown pneumonia epidemic in Hong Kong continued. The government set up a "restricted area" in Jordan yesterday (23), and residents were not allowed to go out until the test results were obtained.

Earlier, the number of confirmed cases in Sham Shui Po continued to increase, and it was classified as a "designated area." A building requires mandatory testing for all residents.

Sham Shui Po (Nan Cheong South) District Councillor Li Ting-fung said that since yesterday (23), government officials have taken environmental sampling in the district, worrying that Sham Shui Po will become the second target for prohibition.

He pointed out that the "designated area" is larger than Jordan and covers all the entrances and exits of all subway stations. At the same time, there are also many residents of subdivided houses and ethnic minorities in the area, so he questioned the effectiveness of the measures.

EPD confirms sewage monitoring of sewers

Li Tingfeng said that at 10 o'clock yesterday morning, government officials were seen setting up tents in the "designated area" of Sham Shui Po for environmental sampling, and this continues to this day, including Maple Street, Guilin Street, Beihe Street, Tai Po Road, etc. .

He inferred that government officials took samples from back alleys where the environment was harsher or where more food outlets discharged sewage.

It is reported that the Environmental Protection Department has confirmed that in the areas of Sham Shui Po and Yau Ma Tei, near the buildings where confirmed cases have recently occurred, sewage monitoring is conducted on the sewers, but the authorities have not provided monitoring data for the time being.

Sham Shui Po has many "three no buildings" and subdivided rooms

Li also pointed out that Sham Shui Po is similar to the Yau Tsim Mong district, such as the "Three No Buildings", subdivided housing tenants, ethnic minorities, etc., and the residents in this district are mostly low-income families. "It is not possible to use the high labor force. It’s a lot of money to buy epidemic prevention equipment.” At the same time, he pointed out that the Sham Shui Po District is densely populated, especially in the bustling area of ​​the Pei Ho Street Market. There are many electronic and daily necessities stalls, and the risk of transmission is indeed high.

However, Li believes that the scope of the "designated area" in Sham Shui Po is larger than that of Jordan and questioned the effectiveness of the measures and whether the government is capable.

He gave an example. Residents in the subdivided houses had no proof of address, and it was difficult to register with their real names. He wondered how to reduce the fish slipping through the net. "It's really necessary to seal all the points. Sham Shui Po is accessible in all directions." He also pointed out that the "designated area" covers all subways. The entrance and exit of the station, as well as the Beihe Street Market, believe that the closure of the area will affect the traffic and citizens' going out. Therefore, they do not agree with the government's measures to close the area.

In addition, Danan Street has become a hot spot for "wenqing" in recent years, but Li Tingfeng said that the flow of people on the street and shops on the weekend has decreased significantly, and many shopkeepers have expressed to him that they are worried about the government's closure of the area, and even the shops have been closed. .
