SITI speaks on “LeaveHomeSafe” mobile app

Following is the transcript of remarks by the Secretary for Innovation, Technology and Industry, Professor Sun Dong, at a media session after attending the official release of the Life Sciences Stories in Hong Kong today (July 14):

Reporter: Secretary, does the introduction of the health code system mean a complete revamp of the "LeaveHomeSafe" app? And also, is the Government testing the health code system to prevent any glitches?

Secretary for Innovation, Technology and Industry: Based on medical doctors' suggestions, a PCR test result is very important for infection control. Currently, our "LeaveHomeSafe" app has no indicator about this important result. Therefore, we are working in the direction of using the "LeaveHomeSafe" app to show the PCR results for identifying confirmed cases. I think this is very important and it is beneficial to the community as a whole.
