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

HK reports 7 COVID-19 cases

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating seven additional COVID-19 cases, of which six are imported and one is epidemiologically linked with a local case.   The linked case involves a 20-year-old student who is the sister of the case announced on June 5.   As a close contact, she was sent to a quarantine centre on June 4. She developed a cough, runny nose and diarrhoea on the same day and was admitted to hospital the next day.   The test result by the Department of Health’s Public Health Laboratory Services Branch revealed that she carried the N501Y mutant strain but not the L452R or E484K mutant gene. The Government required relevant people to undergo compulsory testing yesterday.   The centre added that the patient had not received a COVID-19 vaccine.   A total of 26 cases were reported in Hong Kong in the past 14 days, including two local cases of which one is from unknown sources.   For information and health advice on COVID-19, visit the Government's dedicated webpage.
