Workaholic Carrie Lam will resume duties as Hong Kong's Chief Executive today, a week after she fractured her right elbow falling down stairs at Government House.
Lam had been on leave. Her elbow was put in a cast after an overnight stay at Queen Mary Hospital.
After her discharge last Tuesday, Lam thanked citizens for get-well-soon messages and said it would take two to three weeks for her elbow to heal.
But dubbed a chronic workaholic, Lam announced yesterday her early return, even though she will have to have physiotherapy.
But it will take some time for a full recovery. Lam had said the injury provided a good opportunity for her - a chief executive who cannot stop working - to have a good rest. She had not taken leave for almost three years and had been busy before and after her policy address on October 6.
With more time at home, she realized it has been two years since the Government House open day was suspended due to the pandemic, depriving citizens of the chance to see blossoming rhododendrons.
