The main organizations and representatives of the opposition in Hong Kong this Sunday called for not taking part in the universal coronavirus testing program launched by the authorities of the former British colony.
On this Saturday, the online registration of those who wish to be tested for the virus began. Authorities hope that at least five of China’s 7.5 million people will sign up to help ease the fight against the disease.
However, from the outset, there have been concerns about the processing of personal data by the authorities in relation to Beijing or even the possible transfer to mainland China.
The Vice President of the Workers Alliance of the Hong Kong Hospital Authority, Ivan Law, has denounced that there are companies telling their employees to take the test. “That’s why citizens registered,” he said in statements made by Hong Kong Public Television, RTHK.
