Command Center in Kai Tak
(Must have missed this) - Used for contact tracing, arranging quarantines etc. Need more office space for this and Kai Tak has a bigger location. Depts working on this. Will be in the Kai Tai community center. Next week 1000 disciplined services will be manning contract tracing / will be trained.
- Have to consider pre-requisites (administered on science based premises and advisory panel will ensure that there is data available). If a large quantity arrives in HK, the arrangement is complex - delivery, venues, staff etc. Govt is coordinating and announcement to be made soon.
- 2 retirees, 1 worker at Tuen Mun Hospital + 1 cleaning worker
- BioNTech needs ultra low temp + stringent transport etc - will be concentrated a at vaccination centers - atleast 1 per district.
Handling of People who do not answer contact tracing calls
- Small number of disciplinary officers are seconded right now. Some times incorrect numbers are provided, some make home visits. Prefer to call, but with additional man power being added, home visits are not ruled out.
PMH Resting Room Contamination
- Six environmental are +ve with CT of 30ish. Cleansing and disinfection carried out.
- Will be run by senior disciplined service person in charge.
