Global return to Hong Kong is still cleared experts: masks order to help fight the flu, call for injections under three years old

[14:26] Under the new crown pneumonia epidemic, Hong Kong people are wearing masks, so that there has been no peak winter flu in the past two years.

However, as the world begins to ease entry restrictions, according to the World Health Organization's global fixed-point monitoring of influenza positivity ratios, a "golden cross" has appeared in July this year, that is, the influenza ratio is higher than the new coronary pneumonia virus ratio.



Lam Wai-sun, vice president of the Hong Kong Society of Infectious and Infectious Diseases, said that it is difficult to predict whether the peak season of influenza this winter will recur in Hong Kong, but he agrees that the immune barrier against influenza has dropped significantly. There is a high chance of an outbreak.” Family doctor Lin Yonghe said that this year’s influenza vaccination is more active than last year, and has received more than 100 appointments. It is recommended that citizens who want to travel can get vaccinated as soon as possible.

[12:14] Since yesterday (26th), the Hong Kong government has relaxed the quarantine arrangement for arriving passengers to "0+3", which will also benefit foreign domestic helpers whose wages have been "highly fired" during the epidemic.

Chen Dongfeng, chairman of the Hong Kong Employment Association, said on a radio program today (27th) that the new quarantine arrangement is of great help to the foreign domestic helper agency industry. Employers no longer have to pay huge sums of money to arrange quarantine hotels for workers arriving in Hong Kong. The number of foreign domestic helpers has also increased, and the backlog of cases has been almost completed. As for the salary level of foreign domestic helpers, the salary level has dropped by nearly 20% to about HK$5,000 from about HK$6,000 in April.
