Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor announced yesterday (12th) that in response to the easing of the new crown pneumonia epidemic in Hong Kong, the "vaccine bubble" will be used as the basis to adjust future social distancing measures.

Regarding restaurants, customers must use the "Travel with Peace" app under the deliberation measures, and no longer accept "paper writing", otherwise they will not be able to "enjoy" the deliberation measures.

In addition, six types of premises such as bars that have been ordered to be closed can also be reopened on condition that they must use "Travel with peace of mind" in the future.

Before attending the executive meeting this morning, Carrie Lam was asked by reporters about the arrangements for using "Travel with peace of mind".

She said that when using this application, it will not be difficult for others. If some children and the elderly do not have a mobile phone, they can be regarded as "exceptions." Try to be people-oriented as much as possible, and will discuss the specific details later.

It is said that it is difficult to track the most closely under the ``black violence'' and requires the public to do one more ``beep''

A reporter from "Hong Kong 01" asked that there are opinions that the "Travel with peace of mind" program is still technically undisclosed and opaque. At present, many organizations will call the "Paper Filler" person to confirm, and the process will be the same as " How to balance the citizens’ right to choose?

Lin Zheng responded that since the launch of the "Travel with Peace" program, nearly 4 million people have downloaded it and used tens of thousands of locations. The technology is open and transparent. All data is in the user's mobile phone. The only use is When someone who has been to the same place is diagnosed, the user will be notified and they can decide what action to take.

So far, nearly 20,000 people have gone to the test in response to the reminder.

She pointed out that it has been said countless times in the past that the program does not have a monitoring function, and there is no problem of privacy infringement. It is just based on public health, and it is necessary for the public to take a "beep". This is for everyone. I hope the media can help convey this message. , And also pointed out that some countries use more stringent measures to track the people.

Lam also pointed out that since the first day of the fight against the epidemic, Hong Kong has known that under the environment of "black violence", fake news, slander, and slander for more than ten months, it is difficult to track them closely.

Lam Cheng emphasized that he will not force others to make it difficult. For example, some children or elderly people who do not have mobile phones can be exempted to a certain extent.

Government officials will discuss with the relevant industry later on the exceptions to the vaccination and "safe travel" procedures, and try not to "one size fits all" as far as possible. They hope to be people-oriented and prefer more administrative procedures.
