No new Covid-19 case reported in HK today

02 September 2021

By The SUN 

A vaccination outreach was held in Lok Fu Plaza today to get more people to get jabs 

Not a single case of Covid-19 infection was reported in Hong Kong today, Sept. 2, the first in more than a month. The last time no new local or imported case was detected was on Jul 31.

The new arrivals from abroad would have included foreign domestic helpers who have been trickling in since Hong Kong lifted an entry ban on those vaccinated in either the Philippines or Indonesia starting Aug 30.

Hong Kong residents who were vaccinated in the two countries were also cleared to return from yesterday.

In the past two weeks, a total of 71 new cases were reported, and all of them were imported.  Hong Kong’s total tally remains at 12,114.

Meanwhile, a community outreach vaccination organized today by the government for tenants of Lok Fu Plaza and members of the public received an enthusiastic response, thanks in part to the offer of a 1kg pack of rice for those who would sign up.

Reports say the 80 same-day tickets issued to walk-in participants were snapped up quickly, leaving many people, many of them elderly, disappointed.

Outreach vaccination staff moved quickly, and distributed 80 more tickets to those in the queue so they could get their jabs at a nearby community vaccination centre. A shuttle was provided to transport them to the site.

Civil Service Secretary Patrick Nip was at the shopping mall to oversee the outreach vaccination, along with the chief executive officer of Link Asset Management Limited, George Hongchoy.

More than 100 Link Reit staff and 80 walk-in applicants received their first dose of the BioNTech vaccine during the outreach service.

“I hope such an arrangement will assist those persons who want to get vaccinated to do so immediately as well as the elderly persons and residents nearby. It can also draw people's attention to the importance and urgency of getting vaccinated when walking past this area,” said Nip.

He repeated a call for elderly people to get vaccinated to better protect themselves against the coronavirus and the seasonal flu.

“I appeal to elderly persons to grasp the opportunity to get vaccinated before the winter influenza season arrives. This is the best way to protect oneself under the current epidemic," Nip said.

Those who wish to make an appointment for receving a Covid-19 vaccine at CVCs or outpatient clinics under the Hospital Authority may register at www.covidvaccine.gov.hk.

They can also make appointments directly with private doctors or clinics enrolled in the government’s vaccination program.

In addition, queuing tickets are available for distribution at 21 CVCs each day to persons aged 60 or above and students aged at least 12, so that they can get vaccinated at a designated time on the same day.
