Refers to the "national team" mandatory national testing is not feasible
A number of pro-establishment Legislative Council members made suggestions earlier, urging the government to request the central government to send a "national team" to conduct mandatory nationwide testing for Hong Kong.
Carrie Lam said that the number of daily tests in Hong Kong has been "very large", and it has caused various inconvenience and anxiety to the public.
Lam also pointed out that the universal testing plan was launched in September 2020, and only 1.7 million people were tested in two weeks, which involved a lot of preparatory work, including the preparation of the Fire Eye Laboratory.
She stressed that the only way to be more effective is to increase testing capacity, focus on infected cases and cut off the chain of transmission.
Lam pointed out that he has contacted the testing contractor in Hong Kong, and the contractor expects the mainland to support Hong Kong to increase the testing capacity. He also said that he has contacted the Guangdong provincial government, and the other party has provided the Hong Kong government with the contact information of the relevant persons.
