Civil Aid Service holds parade

The Civil Aid Service (CAS) held the Celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the Establishment of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and CAS 70th Anniversary Parade today at the Police College.   Chief Secretary Chan Kwok-ki officiated at the ceremony and acted as the reviewing officer for the parade.   To demonstrate national identity and patriotic sentiment for the motherland, the CAS has fully adopted from today, the Chinese-style foot drill that requires exacting standards, and demonstrated the drill's protocols for the first time in the parade.   As an auxiliary force under the Security Bureau, the CAS has been honouring the pledge of "provide emergency relief, serve the community" and has been rendering immediate assistance during emergencies to protect Hong Kong citizens.   During the COVID-19 epidemic, the CAS has remained steadfast on the front line of the anti-epidemic operations by rapidly assisting in setting up a number of community isolation faci

Former COVID-19 patient jailed

A 63-year-old man was sentenced to immediate imprisonment for four months at the Kowloon City Magistrates’ Courts today for violating the Prevention & Control of Disease Regulation.     He was earlier diagnosed with COVID-19 and admitted to a public hospital for treatment. He left the hospital without permission on December 18 last year and was located by Police two days later.   Under the regulation, a person shall not, knowing that he is a contact or is infected with a specified infectious disease, expose other people to the risk of infection by the person's presence or conduct in any public conveyance or any street, public place, place of entertainment or assembly, club or hotel or by carrying on any trade, business or occupation.   Offenders face a maximum fine of $5,000 and imprisonment for six months.   The Department of Health said public co-operation is the key to stop the spread of the disease in the community. Such irresponsible acts increase the risk of exposing other people to infection.   The Government severely condemns such acts and appeals to the public to adhere to the relevant regulations.
