In a press conference held by the Department of Food and Hygiene and the Hospital Authority (#HA) journalist asked why medical staff, who have to be in close proximity with the potential infected, were in inferior gear compared to the police officers who only had to stand guard at the building.

The representative from HA claimed “there were different procedures with different departments. I am sure not what their risk assessment is. I only know that our procedure is up to standard”.
