Testing records checked

The Government today completed a joint enforcement operation at Block 12 of Richland Gardens in Kowloon Bay, which was earlier included in a compulsory testing notice.   The enforcement action was conducted from around 8am to 11am by the Constitutional & Mainland Affairs Bureau together with Police and the Department of Health.   Out of the 269 people whose records were checked, three had failed to comply with the notice. They were issued with a compulsory testing order and a fixed penalty notice of $10,000. http://dlvr.it/SZ0L6X

Rodent infestation rate falls

The rodent infestation rate for the first half of 2021 was 2.8%, lower than the 3.6% recorded for the second half of 2020, the Food & Environmental Hygiene Department announced today.   It added that the rate suggested rodent infestation in public areas is generally under control.   More than 30,000 rodents were collected or caught by the department during the same period.    The department said the anti-rodent operation’s second round will start in November, during which the designated target areas in several districts will be extended to cover more rodent black spots.   It will also allocate resources to strengthen the cleansing and rodent control work in such districts and take stringent enforcement actions.   As in previous years, the department rolled out a two-phase citywide anti-rodent campaign to encourage public participation, which was completed on September 10.   During the campaign, the department enhanced its inspections and rodent prevention and control measures in target areas including markets, municipal services buildings, hawker bazaars, typhoon shelters, lanes adjacent to food premises and other problematic spots and their peripheries.   The public can access the GeoInfo Map through the link on the department’s website for areas covered by individual survey locations and the latest rodent infestation rates.
