New harbourfront space opens

The Development Bureau announced that the Pierside Precinct near Wan Chai Ferry Pier further opened today, providing a nostalgic harbourfront leisure space with a panoramic view of Victoria Harbour for the public.   Being the 12th harbourfront leisure space that opened since October last year, the newly opened area is located to the east of the ferry pier on a harbour site reclaimed for the construction of the Central-Wan Chai Bypass.   The bureau said under the incremental approach, a 180-metre-long promenade of the precinct opened earlier in March, followed by the opening of a further 80m in October.   With an area of about 4,600 sq m, the newly opened part has almost doubled the precinct's original space.   In contrast to the colourful cartoon style adopted at other harbourfront sites opened earlier in Western District and Wan Chai, the precinct mainly comprises simple fair-faced concrete and wooden structures.   It features a stylish touch with its clear and rectiline

1 imported COVID-19 case identified

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating one additional imported COVID-19 case involving the L452R mutant strain.   The patient is an eight-year-old girl who arrived from Korea, a medium-risk place. She tested positive at Penny’s Bay Quarantine Centre and is a close contact of another imported case patient.   Separately, the centre reminds specified people linked to Towers 1, 2 and 3, Hampton Place in Tai Kok Tsui to undergo mandatory testing tomorrow in accordance with a compulsory testing notice.   To provide free testing service for citizens subject to compulsory testing, the Government will reopen the mobile specimen collection station at the open-air car park on G/F, Hampton Place in Tai Kok Tsui and set up a mobile specimen collection station at Ocean Park Car Park tomorrow.   In view of patients linked to two previous imported cases who had stayed in Hong Kong during the incubation period, people who had been present at three specified premises must undergo additional testing. Those who have completed a COVID-19 vaccination course still need to get tested.   Furthermore, three schools where an outbreak of upper respiratory tract infection or influenza-like illness occurred are covered in the same compulsory testing notice. However, people who have finished their jab course can be exempted.   A total of 41 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.
