Tai Wo Hau testing check done

The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise and enforcement operation for Fu Keung House in Tai Wo Hau Estate finished today with no positive COVID-19 cases found.   It made a restriction-testing declaration yesterday evening, requiring people in the specified area to stay in their premises and undergo mandatory testing. About 1,150 people were tested.   In the subsequent enforcement operation, about 335 people’s test records were checked. Twenty-four people were found to have not received compulsory testing.   Government staff also visited around 720 households in the area, of which 40 did not answer the door. Such households are urged to contact the Government promptly to arrange testing.   According to the compulsory testing notice issued yesterday, those who had stayed in Fu Keung House within a specified period for more than two hours must get tested by tomorrow even if they were not in the restricted area when the declaration took effect. http://dlvr.it/

More MiC projects expected

Secretary for Transport & Housing Frank Chan said the Housing Authority will proactively select more suitable public housing sites for adopting modular integrated construction (MiC).    A MiC module is built up from walls, slabs and exterior walls pre-installed in the factory. Together with all the necessary finishes, fixtures and fittings, it is then directly transported to the site for assembly.   While answering lawmakers’ questions today, Mr Chan explained that the authority has selected one of the domestic blocks of the public housing development at Tung Chung Area 99 as the first pilot MiC project.   He noted that the project is currently undergoing excavation and construction works for the basement car park. Together with the construction works of the superstructure, the project is scheduled for completion in 2024.   Mr Chan pointed out that not all of the authority’s housing development sites can meet all the requirements of using MiC. When identifying suitable MiC projects, the authority would consider selecting public housing sites with relatively simple terrain, transportation network and availability of storage area nearby.   To map out the long-term solutions regarding site constraints, the authority has selected a domestic block at Tak Tin Street and three domestic blocks at Anderson Road Quarry Site as MiC projects.   The authority will review the efficiency of MiC amidst the construction process, work out detailed analysis of the construction time, workflow and cost, and work with the industry to explore means to optimise the application efficiency, Mr Chan added.
