Boosts employment by increasing temporary jobs (Development Bureau)

The Chief Executive has announced earlier a series of measures on job retention, job creation and job advancement under the Anti-epidemic Fund. It is suggested to create around 30000 time-limited jobs in the public and private sectors in the coming two years to reduce unemployment, the situation of which has been worsened owing to the COVID-19 epidemic. The Development Bureau and departments under it are taking proactive actions to facilitate and implement these measures by providing about 4700 temporary jobs of a wide variety in the times to come. Provide 4700 temporary jobs These temporary jobs cover various areas and people with different skills and academic qualifications, including professionals and technical and back-office support officers, will be eligible. Fresh graduates can also apply for internship programmes on building surveying, urban planning, estate surveying, land surveying and engineering, etc. Of the 4700 new job openings, more than 530 are provided by the government while 4100 and more are openings from private organisations. Some of the job openings will be in place in three months progressively. Digitailise the E&M assets Among these openings, the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department plans to recruit 1200 temporary staff with service terms of up to 18 months. Half of the employees will be responsible for cleaning electrical and mechanical (E&M) systems at several thousand governmental buildings, while the other half will assist in the digitalization of E&M assets. Inspect drainage pipes Besides, the Buildings Department will appoint consultancy firms to inspect drainage pipes at the external walls of over 20000 targeted private domestic and composite buildings in Hong Kong. The appointed firms will have to recruit extra manpower and hence are expected to create more than 400 job openings. Improve buildings safety The Buildings Department will also recruit 120 short-term staff whose job duties include: speeding up the processing of drainage repair order yet to be complied with and cases of misconnection of drainage; organising public educational and promotional activities, etc. Amid the COVID-19 epidemic, the government aims to add momentum to the labour market by increasing short-term job openings for people from all walks of life, from professionals, technical and supporting officers to fresh graduates.

Customs and Excise Department: We hear you, we stand by you

As the COVID-19 epidemic continues, many customs officers, with the support of their families, volunteer to take part in conducting preventive measures. The volunteers, who are assigned to work in a three-shift roster in 24 hours, are responsible for registration, distributing resources and providing care to people under quarantine.As the volunteers say, while their experiences of serving tourists at the boarders can be applied at the quarantine centres, they can also be a listener of the quarantined. Every member of the team is proudly contributing to fighting against the virus. (The video is broadcasted in Cantonese)

【Stronger Together HK - Cheung Ho-ching, Civil Aid Service】

Pulled down to the depths of the valley, one would ask ‘What’s next?’ Ask the Civil Aid Service’s Cheung Ho-ching and he would tell you, “we will bounce right back, as long as the people of Hong Kong stick together”. CAS is an auxiliary emergency service. Cheung himself is a volunteer working at the Jao Tsung-I Academy quarantine centre, helping the Duty Officer with the centre’s daily operations. Cheung told us that all the volunteers there, while mindful, are not bogged down by fears of infection. The volunteers just want to contribute, play a part and do a little something to help. Forever an optimist, Cheung is not overly bothered about the adverse impact of the epidemic. Rather, he is heartened by the selflessness and compassion of Hong Kong people during such trying times. Unsolicited, many go out of their way to co-ordinate donations, distribute and hand out face masks, hand sanitisers...  He can’t help being impressed. Our hats off to our volunteers! Our thanks to each of you who join us in the fight against the virus!  

【Stronger Together HK - Chan Lok-sum, Country Parks Ranger】

Yes, we may now be down at the bottom of the valley. However, if we slowly make our ascent, one step at a time, we can reach the peak. And from up there, we will re-discover Hong Kong, in all its glory and splendour.According to Country Parks Ranger Chan Lok-sum, there has been a considerable jump in the number of hikers recently, all in search of more space and fresh air. Many however left behind them litter like used tissues and face masks. Ms Chan would love to see fewer litter bugs, if only hikers were more conscientious when disposing their own litter.Probably due to the SARS experience, people in Hong Kong are very disciplined in maintaining personal hygiene. Wearing masks is a norm, so is sharing hygiene essentials with friends in need. Such mutual help and care make Hong Kong a beautiful place to live in.  

【Stronger Together HK - Postman Lee Wah】

Hey Mr Postman, how's your day? And how has work been lately?As soon as the epidemic broke out, overseas postal packages started flooding in. Many of them are top of our “most wanted” list — face masks and sanitation products.Our postmen may not be in the war trenches so to speak, but delivering these packages is nonetheless a matter of great urgency too. To ensure their timely delivery to the right hands, many postmen volunteer to stay behind after work to make this happen.Yes, whoever we are, everyone has a role to play and every role is equally important. Credit is not what we are looking for. We are looking for the smile behind every mask. As Postman Lee Wah said, "If everyone does his or her part, the pandemic will be over in no time.” Let’s thank all colleagues who stand by their posts and give their best to overcome this challenge, as well as all of you who help by maintaining social distance.  

【Stronger Together HK - Senior Immigration Officer Mickie Choi】

As the first rescue team member to arrive in Japan, Senior Immigration Officer, Mickie Choi, never for once claimed to be selfless. He, in a matter-of-fact way, described his work in Yokohama as a duty. “Someone has to take this up. Once I was assigned to it, I had got to give my very best and accomplish the mission,” said he.Mickie arrived in Yokohama on February 4. Series of negotiations and preparations followed. When he eventually welcomed ashore the passengers, Choi could not help getting a little emotional. Mission accomplished, yes, but not without concerns. Upon returning home, he had to confine himself temporarily to the living room couch. He, however, hastened to add: “What I did was nothing compared to the selfless dedication of our frontline health workers. I would in fact like to take this opportunity to thank every one of them. I also wish for Hong Kongers to come together; that all can play a part, however small, to overcome this challenge.”We are thankful to those who have helped bring home our residents, to those fighting this pandemic, and to those maintaining social distance!  

【Stronger Together HK - Dr Chan Po-ling】

It has not been easy holding the first line of defence. Hats off to health workers who are engaged in combat, on the firing line, day after day.In seeking to protect patients and themselves at the same time, Dr. Chan Po Ling felt that coping with mental pressures was the most difficult part.While taking off her white coat after work each time, Dr. Chan would ask herself “Should I head home tonight?"“Would being home affect my loved ones?”“Should I rather stay in a hotel or hostel until the pandemic is over?” After all, the well-being of the family is on top of everyone’s mind.Indeed, medical workers are not lone soldiers in the battle. Look at the supporting staff, helpers, and cleaning ladies. They are all in this together. Nobody has the crowning glory. It is shared by each and everyone who is making a contribution to the fight against the coronavirus, one way or the other.Our appreciation goes to all medical workers and supporting staff, not to mention contributors from other sectors, including citizens who chip in by maintaining social distancing – every metre helps!  

【Stronger Together HK - Ambulanceman Siu Man-chun】

As an ambulanceman, duty beckons to serve patients with all sorts of injuries and illnesses. Ambulanceman Siu Man-chun is always prepared for the worst.But then, never mind how well prepared one may be, working mostly on the frontline has its concerns.  Siu says he is often bothered by fears of infection, and worse still, transmitting it to family and friends. Worries are there, always.Nonetheless, Siu is fully committed to serving Hong Kong, the home to which he belongs and to which he owes his allegiance.Our appreciation goes to all medical workers and supporting staff, not forgetting contributors from other sectors, including citizens who chip in by maintaining social distancing.

Secret of handwashing

Handwashing simply means getting your hands wet under tap water, doesn’t it? Well, yes and no. Handwashing can be a matter of profession when you take it seriously. Basically there are two ways of securing hand hygiene: one by liquid soap and water, and the other by alcohol-based hand-rub. With liquid soap and water It is advised to clean hands with liquid soap and water when hands are visibly dirty or visibly soiled with blood and body fluid, after using the toilet or changing the diapers. Steps:(i) Wet hands under running water.(ii) Apply liquid soap and rub hands together to make a soapy lather.(iii) Away from the running water, rub hands according to the 7 steps of hand hygiene technique for at least 20 seconds. Do not rinse off the soap while rubbing.(iv) Rinse hands thoroughly under running water.(v) Dry hands thoroughly with either a clean cotton towel or a paper towel.(vi) The cleaned hands should not touch the water tap directly again. For example: using a paper towel to wrap the faucet before turn it off. With alcohol-based handrub When hands are not visibly soiled, hand hygiene with 70-80% alcohol-based handrub is also an effective alternative. (Always check the expiry date before purchasing and using alcohol-based handrub.) Steps:(i) Apply a palmful of alcohol-based handrub to cover all surfaces of the hands. Rub hands according to the 7 steps of hand hygiene technique for at least 20 seconds until the hands are dry. There are three principles to note if you would like to be an expert of hand hygiene: Point 1:Rub hands with 7 stepsThat is the seven parts of your hand, i.e. Palms > Back of hands > Between fingers > Back of fingers > Thumbs > Finger tips > Wrists.Point 2:Rub hands at least 20 secondsPoint 3:Reminding Each Other to Keep Hands Clean Before you are ready to be a hand hygiene master, remember to always clean your hands in the following circumstances: (a) Before & after touching eyes, nose and mouth;(b) Before eating & preparing food;(c) After using the toilet;(d) When hands are contaminated by respiratory secretions, e.g. aftercoughing or sneezing;(e) After changing diapers or handling soiled items from children orthe sick;(f) After touching animals, poultry or their droppings;(g) After handling garbage;(h) After touching public installations or equipment, such as escalator handrails, elevator control panels or door knobs;(i) Before and after visiting hospitals, residential care homes or caring for the sick; and last but not least, "Any time you find your hands dirty."
