What's On

(Event Postponed)

Hong Kong's third wave of coronavirus infections appears to have been contained. However, COVID-19 remains a major risk to the community until an effective vaccine becomes available.

With the influenza season fast approaching, public health experts have warned that a fourth wave of coronavirus could be even worse than previous outbreaks. As such, the Government is cautiously relaxing social distancing measures in phases. Safeguarding public health while ensuring the economy can continue running is no easy task. What is the government's strategy for moving forward? How realistic are the proposals to enable cross-border movement and travel bubbles with other countries? What needs to be done to close loopholes to prevent importing cases?

Secretary for Food and Health Sophia Chan will discuss all these and other key issues at the Chamber's "Town Hall Forum Series" on 13 November. She will also explain how the city's public healthcare system is preparing to handle a possible fourth wave of COVID-19 infections, and the Government's strategy for procuring vaccines.

Upon successful registration, members will receive a confirmation email with a specific link to access the webinar two working days before the event. Please familiarize yourself with the usage of Zoom before the event.

Speaker(s) Professor Chan was appointed as Secretary for Food and Health on 1 July 2017, before which she was Under Secretary for Food and Health for five years. Before joining the Government, Professor Chan was a Professor in Nursing, Head of the School of Nursing and Director of Research at the University of Hong Kong (HKU). She was also an Assistant Dean of the Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine of HKU.
