More HZMB private car quotas set

The governments of Hong Kong and Macau have agreed to increase the regular quotas for Hong Kong cross-boundary non-commercial private cars using the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge to Macau, the Transport Department announced today.   The decision was made to enhance traffic flow between Hong Kong and Macau, better utilising the bridge, the department said.   It will increase the Hong Kong quota by 1,000, following the earlier quota allocation of 1,800 for Hong Kong.   The additional quota will be distributed in two phases from the second quarter.   Half of the additional 1,000 quota allocations is for company applicants and the other half is for individual applicants. The quotas are valid for no more than three years. The eligibility criteria of quota applications remains the same.   Private cars allocated with Hong Kong quotas will be permitted to access the city of Macau multiple times using the bridge.   The Hong Kong quota allotments will be re-allocated upon expiry thro

Duo sentenced for hiding health data

Two people were sentenced by the courts today after being convicted for providing false information in relation to the Centre for Health Protection’s epidemiological investigation of COVID-19 cases.   The duo were patients of COVID-19. They were charged with violating the Prevention & Control of Disease (Disclosure of Information) Regulation.   The 30-year-old man provided false information to authorised officers on six occasions between April 16 and 18 while the 31-year-old woman provided false information to an authorised officer on April 17.   At the Kowloon City Magistrates' Courts, the man was sentenced to immediate imprisonment for three months while the woman was sentenced to imprisonment for 20 days.   The Department of Health said it is grossly irresponsible to conceal or provide false or misleading information to an authorised officer as such act may hinder the contact tracing process and pose a serious threat to public health.   Resolute action will be taken against those who have breached the relevant regulations, the department added.   Four people have been convicted so far for breaching the regulation.
