The Hong Kong SAR government has established a laboratory run by CCP-owned Beijing Genomics Institute (#BGI) at Hong Kong’s Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park for universal voluntary Covid-19 testing without consultation from the public and requested private clinics assisting sample collection.
Neo Democrats members of Roy Tam Hoi-pong and Gary Fan Kwok-wai and Central and Western District lawmaker of Napo Wong Weng-Chi protested outside the stadium on August 16, 2020.
More than 30 police on the scene issued tickets for violation of “group gathering ban” and confiscated the speaker.
District Councilor Roy Tam stated civilians may lose confidence in private clinics if samples are passed to the China-owned companies for Covid-19 testing. He urged private doctors not to join the plan and criticised that the government ingratiated the Chinese Communist Party by sacrificing Hong Kongers.
The pro-CCP camp has not only promoted the “Hong Kong Heath QR Code” system, but has also proposed only allowing those with the green “Heath QR code” to dine-in at restaurants. Gary Fan challenged that the reason behind this wired policy is for surveillance to restrict civilians’ freedom of movement.
