Representatives from the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong (DAB), Hong Kong’s largest pro-establishment party, identified a possible sixth wave as an area of concern in a meeting with Chief Executive-elect John Lee Ka-chiu Monday afternoon.
DAB chair Starry Lee Wai-king said that the Lee administration must work to minimize the impact of the Covid
-19 pandemic, considering that some experts have suggested a sixth epidemic wave is approaching.
Makeshift hospitals must be available for those returning to the mainland, as well as foreign domestic workers under quarantine, she added.
She hoped John Lee's team could continue to meet with political parties throughout the policy formulation process. To better respond to the epidemic, the government will strengthen ties with community organisations.
Vice-chairman Gary Chan Hak-kan pointed out that in addition to issues in housing and economic development, the hygiene and integrity of public infrastructure continue to ail citizens, and should also be addressed.
