This will make young people or the elderly more aware of using smart phones to make records. , It’s more effective to protect yourself.”

Xue Yongheng: The Hong Kong Health Code is a prelude to customs clearance but has nothing to do with quotas, no need to rush to apply
The Secretary for Innovation and Technology, Xue Yongheng, said in a radio program today (3rd) that the public is looking forward to customs clearance. He also pointed out that the "Hong Kong Health Code" is a prelude to customs clearance.
He pointed out that understanding the application process is difficult for citizens who are not familiar with the use of smartphones. Therefore, the authorities have reserved enough time for everyone to familiarize themselves with the application before customs clearance. They will also send outreach teams to set up street stops in various districts in Hong Kong. Assist citizens to download.
However, he emphasized that the download time of the "Kangkang Code" has nothing to do with the customs clearance quota, and urged everyone not to rush to apply. "I am worried that if too many friends download at the same time, they may queue for a long time. If you have time, download it first.” He also shared that before the launch of the "Kangkang Code", he had tried to open an account and download it. It only took a few minutes to be very convenient.

There is no plan to replace the app with Octopus. Xue: At this stage, opening too many methods will cause confusion
"Travel with peace of mind" is gradually mandatory in some premises, but it has caused inconvenience to the elderly or the visually impaired. There have been groups that advocated using Octopus instead of mobile apps.
Xue Yongheng pointed out that in the current operation of "Travel with peace of mind", the premises only need to post a QR code at a conspicuous location, and multiple QR codes can also be photocopied at any time for the public to scan. "Everyone is used to the same convenience. If If you use other methods, you have to get used to it again and reinstall the same tools. At this stage, if you use too many methods, it will confuse the public and make the person in charge of the premises face more difficulties in the epidemic prevention work." Use the "Travel with peace of mind" app.

"Yuekang Code" allows the family to manage the government on their behalf
The "Yuekang Code" allows citizens to apply for the "Yuekang Code" for their children through the function of "add family members" and manage them on their behalf.
When asked whether the Hong Kong government would refer to the practice, Xue Yongheng pointed out that the use of smart phones is relatively popular in Hong Kong. Although I understand that some people do not have smart phones, they feel that the practice of management on their behalf may not be good. On the 30th, everyone will be together, and there will always be differences. In this way, young people or the elderly will be more aware of using smartphones to make travel records and protect themselves more effectively."
He emphasized that the systems used in different places have their own characteristics, and in line with the social situation and the development of the epidemic, the authorities will also update and optimize the system by referring to different practices and keeping pace with the times.
