Thus, President Xi's words responded much to the global situation that we should focus on. Our common enemy is, in fact, merely the virus, so we should work together to hit it."

"President Xi said the words on an international occasion, and the cooperation he mentioned is also of international level, but I think the words are instructive to Hong Kong. As I have said, we need to make concerted efforts to fight the pandemic. Thus, in Hong Kong where over seven million residents live, we need cooperation rather than confrontation. We need understanding rather than condemnation. We need confidence rather than dismay. Today I chose to wear a blue clothes deliberately just to tell all of us that I'm confident that Hong Kong will win the battle against the disease, and soon a blue sky will appear after rain."

Storyline


The G20 Extraordinary Virtual Leaders' Summit provides important opportunity for China to work with the international community in fight against COVID-19, a common enemy of the whole world, and what President Xi said is instructive to Hong Kong’s efforts against the epidemic, said Carrie Lam, Chief Executive of China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR).

Lam said Friday at a press conference that the video summit held Thursday by leaders of the Group of 20 (G20) to coordinate multilateral response to the pandemic came as an important opportunity where China shared anti-epidemic experience with the world, and all countries should work together to prevent the spread of the virus.

Lam said Chinese President Xi Jinping's words delivered at the summit also instructed Hong Kong to start cooperation among different social circles to fight the COVID-19.

"Since the World Health Organization announced the COVID-19 could be characterized as pandemic on March 11, it has entered a high time that global cooperation is needed. I'm afraid that in fact, there's no country unaffected by the pandemic, which also manifested that as we have entered a stage of globalization, no one can detach itself from the world. Thus, President Xi's words responded much to the global situation that we should focus on. Our common enemy is, in fact, merely the virus, so we should work together to hit it," said Lam.

"President Xi said the words on an international occasion, and the cooperation he mentioned is also of international level, but I think the words are instructive to Hong Kong. As I have said, we need to make concerted efforts to fight the pandemic. Thus, in Hong Kong where over seven million residents live, we need cooperation rather than confrontation. We need understanding rather than condemnation. We need confidence rather than dismay. Today I chose to wear a blue clothes deliberately just to tell all of us that I'm confident that Hong Kong will win the battle against the disease, and soon a blue sky will appear after rain," Lam added.

The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) government on Friday announced a new round of measures to curb the spread of COVID-19, such as limits on gatherings and restaurant services, in response to surging imported cases.

Group gatherings of more than four people in public places will be prohibited over the next two weeks from Sunday, Lam told the press. Those occur at workplaces or belong to official procedures, as well as weddings and funerals, will be exempted.

Restrictions will also be imposed on dine-in services of restaurants, bars and cafes since Saturday night, including closing half of all the seats, limit the number of diners at each table to four, keeping each table 1.5 meters apart, and measuring temperatures of diners.

Entertainment venues will be shut down also since Saturday evening, including amusement game centers, fitness rooms, cinemas and rinks.

The new moves designed to further enforce social distancing came in amid an escalated COVID-19 situation in Hong Kong.

The total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases surged from less than 140 to more than 500 in Hong Kong during the past two weeks as the rapidly-spreading pandemic overseas increased the imported risk of Hong Kong. The new cases stood at 65 cases on Friday, the biggest daily jump since the COVID-19 outbreak.

The government had already started controlling inbound trips to cut off the COVID-19 transmission, such as banning the entry of all non-local travelers from overseas and imposing a 14-day compulsory quarantine on visitors.
