Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung today welcomed the Baptist University’s move to incorporate national security education in their curriculum, saying it is educators’ duty to promote national security education.   Making the remarks today, Mr Yeung said: “I think this is in accordance to the National Security Law because Article 10 requires all the schools including universities to promote national security education in their schools.”   He added that he believes the higher education institutions are adopting their own approaches in this cause.   “Our requirement is for all these educational institutions to follow the Hong Kong National Security Law, the requirements under the Article 10.”   When asked about a teacher’s comment concerning an athlete’s attire during an Olympic competition, Mr Yeung stressed that the whole community should support the Hong Kong team in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.   “So far I think the relevant persons have already made a clarification about

Catering premises inspected

The Food & Environmental Hygiene Department said it took stringent enforcement actions relating to anti-epidemic regulations during the Easter holidays.   It stepped up inspections and conducted joint operations with Police in various districts on April 2 and 3.   A total of 92 catering premises were inspected during the joint operations, and 894 catering premises and 145 other premises were reviewed by the department on its own in the past two days.   It initiated procedures on prosecution against 10 catering business operators suspected of breaching the Prevention & Control of Disease (Requirements & Directions) (Business & Premises) Regulation.   Among them, three were related to failure to ensure that customers scan the LeaveHomeSafe QR code or register their names, contact numbers and the dates and times of their visits before they are allowed to enter the premises.   The remaining were related to the distance or partitions between tables, mask-wearing and failure to arrange for all staff to undergo a COVID-19 test every 14 days.   To minimise the transmission of COVID-19, the department strongly appealed to catering business operators to comply with the relevant regulations on prevention and control of disease.   It also reminded the public to exercise self-discipline and co-operate to fight the virus together.
