Coronavirus: ‘test yourselves for 3 days in a row next week’ – Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam urges residents to use rapid kits for better picture of health crisis
- Chief executive says exercise voluntary but appeals to residents to join and report positive results, arguing this will provide authorities with a clearer picture of situation
- Another 4,475 new Covid-19 infections recorded on Saturday while the Hospital Authority reports 116 fatalities
Hong Kong’s leader has urged all residents across the city to screen themselves for Covid-19 using rapid test kits for three days in a row next week to help authorities identify hidden infections in the community and better assess the true extent of the pandemic.
However, medical experts remained sceptical about the scientific value of the voluntary mass exercise, given that it would rely on a quick-testing method with lower sensitivity and the sincerity of people to report their infections, while providing no picture of past infections.
Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor on Saturday called on everyone to test themselves from April 8-10 using kits delivered to their homes by the government, and report any infections to the authorities within 24 hours.
