Who was the busiest man in town yesterday? Secretary for Food and Health York Chow Yat-ngok, quite possibly. Dr Chow was fairly stretched as the release of the long-awaited consultation document on health-care reform came amid the influenza outbreak and the death of four children with flu-like symptoms. After announcing a suspension of classes at primary schools and kindergartens at a late press conference on Wednesday, Dr Chow arrived at Legco at about 10.30am to be mobbed by dozens of reporters. After fielding a barrage of questions, he spent two hours in Legco introducing the reforms, which he said had taken more than two years to produce. Another press conference at 2.30pm was followed by a briefing for editors at 5pm. All the while he was waiting for an update on the flu outbreak and the results of an afternoon meeting of an expert committee headed by University of Hong Kong microbiologist Yuen Kwok-yung called to investigate the death of the four children. In Legco, Dr Chow faced criticism about the HK$1.2 million contract to publicise the reform plan awarded to Heidi Kwan Cheng Lai-man without tender, with some saying the consultation document had failed to convince the public why they should contribute to a mandatory health insurance scheme. But Dr Chow's day was not without some levity. When he was asked what the campaign logo symbolised, he said: 'The logo is like two men, or two women, or one man, one woman ... actually I don't know if it is woman or man.'
