Jordan lockdown will end in Monday morning: Matthew Cheung

Local | 24 Jan 2021 3:35 pm

Chief Secretary Matthew Cheung Kin-chung is confident that the lockdown in the Jordan area will end at 6 am tomorrow as scheduled. 

Almost 7,000 people have tested the coronavirus on Saturday which meets the target, Cheung said after spending half an hour in the affected area. 

He added officers knocked the doors and recorded 6,200 residents’ information in 3,200 flats. They will continue approaching the 45 households who did not answer the doors. 

Cheung said “not many people” had fled the area before the lockdown. He said the government was decisive and has already provided food packs and cleaning supplies to the residents. 

It must have caused inconvenience to the residents, but they will not be compensated, Cheung said.

More details will be announced tonight after the government receives all the test results in the lockdown area. 

On Saturday early morning, more than 8,000 residents in Jordan were confined for 48 hours in the city’s first large scale lock down to curb the spread of Covid-19 in the city.
