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

3 imported COVID-19 cases detected

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating three additional imported COVID-19 cases involving patients who arrived from Qatar and the Philippines.   The centre added that it is looking into an overseas COVID-19 case concerning a 16-year-old boy who lived at Block K of Kornhill in Quarry Bay.   He travelled to the UK on September 6 by flight CX255 after testing negative in Hong Kong on September 4. He developed symptoms on September 16 and his specimen collected in the UK on the same day tested positive for the virus.   The centre stressed that it is following up on the case with British health authorities and epidemiological investigations are underway.   The patient received two doses of the BioNTech vaccine on July 8 and July 29 in Hong Kong.   As a prudent measure, the Hong Kong building where he resided has been included in a compulsory testing notice.   Meanwhile, specified people linked to Amber Garden in Happy Valley are reminded to undergo compulsory testing tomorrow.   A total of 44 cases were reported in Hong Kong in the past 14 days, all of which are imported.   For information and health advice on COVID-19, visit the Government’s dedicated webpage.
