Lockdown rumours denied

The Government said it has absolutely no plan to place Hong Kong under lockdown at midnight and prohibit people from departing or entering the city, or forbid them from dining in restaurants after 6pm.   In a statement of clarification today, the Government condemned those who had caused public panic by spreading such rumours online and via WhatsApp. It also stressed that law enforcement agencies will take serious action if criminal elements are involved.   During a press briefing last Friday, the Secretary for Food & Health, together with the Director of Health and the Hospital Authority Chief Executive gave updates on the latest epidemic situation and outlined the tightened measures to be taken, the Government pointed out.   Moreover, it emphasised that it will pursue such anti-epidemic actions rigorously and resolutely.   “The Government has all along been transparent with its epidemic control measures and will make announcements as early as possible. Any unhelpful speculation or spreading of rumours is counterproductive in the fight against the epidemic by the Government and the people of Hong Kong.”   The public should stay vigilant against rumours and pay attention to information released by the Government to avoid being misled, the Government advised.
