SITUATION UPDATE: September 2022  

The Official database recorded several waves of Covid-19 have hit Hong Kong SAR in the last two years. The current situation is not yet improving, as there is an increasing trend of Covid-19 confirmed cases. Earlier this month, Government reports showed a rapid increase in positive cases that at times exceeded 10,000 cases in one day. Most are transmitted locally, while 244 are imported cases. The number of deaths also increased by 11 patients. The Government is closely monitoring the situation, especially related to the availability of hospital beds, as the increase in cases would impact the availability of beds in the Hospital.  

Confirmed positive cases are also found in six residential care homes (RCHs) for the elderly and one for PWDs (people with disabilities) and in more than 80 schools where offline lessons were suspended for up to one week to reduce local infection. Children are also encouraged to receive Covid-19 vaccination earlier, prior to the end of the school year. Hong Kong SAR’s Government is planning to lower the age limit to receive Covid-19 vaccine doses so that students under ten years old could be more protected. Furthermore, it has been announced that the outreach vaccination program will be extended to accelerate the vaccination rate of residents. The government will now re-open testing facilities in various public areas. 

Current Needs 

Some needs identified are as follows: 

  • Support kits for vulnerable groups (Elderly and disabled people) 
  • Medicines and testing kits 
  • Vaccination stations
