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

Stay vigilant against COVID-19

People should stay vigilant against COVID-19 even though Hong Kong is currently experiencing a drop in the number of cases, Centre for Health Protection Controller Dr Ronald Lam said today.   Dr Lam made the remarks at a press briefing after the centre announced that the number of new coronavirus cases dropped to just nine.   "Currently, we are seeing a slow drop in the number of COVID-19 cases in the recent few days. The next step we will take would be affected by a number of factors, including, perhaps, during the Lunar New Year when many of the citizens do not seek medical consultation. So this may affect the trend of the epidemic after the Lunar New Year.   "Also, during the holidays, usually there will be some kinds of gatherings of families together, although we have appealed again and again to people to avoid that kind of mixing and gatherings."   Dr Lam added that the centre will continue to monitor the epidemic situation given the number of cases could rebound after the Lunar New Year.   "Looking back at the past experiences of the past year - usually after long vacations and after these kinds of gatherings - we usually see some form of upsurge in the number of cases. So we would not rule out the possibility that the number of cases will increase again. So we need to observe that trend and be very, very cautious."
