Coronavirus: what we know so far about the new strain of Covid-19

London has gone into lockdown and many countries and regions have banned UK flights after the discovery of a new and reportedly more transmissible variant of the coronavirus in Britain. The news also sparked a scientific scramble to gather more facts about this new Sars-CoV-2 strain that causes the disease Covid-19. The top questions for researchers include whether it will change how the coronavirus spreads, whether it makes people more sick and if the much-anticipated new vaccines being distributed will still work.

Hong Kong’s first and last hand-painted porcelain factory

Yuet Tung is Hong Kong’s first and last hand-painted porcelain factory. For over  90 years, the company has produced “Guang Cai,” a special kind of Qing dynasty ceramic originating from Guangzhou province. From workshops, first in Kowloon City and later in Kowloon Bay, the prized porcelain goods made their way to the homes of former British governors Murray MacLehose and Chris Patten, as well as five-star hotels such as The Peninsula and Shangri-La. But the factory might face closure, because of dwindling business and a lack of workers from the younger generation who are willing to learn the craft.

How will the national security law change education in Hong Kong?

A Hong Kong educator was banned for life from teaching in the city after he was accused of making separatist remarks in a classroom. Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam said the government decided to pull the teacher’s licence after a “thorough probe”. But an education system insider told the South China Morning Post that the teacher’s comments were part of life-education classes meant to help pupils understand freedom of speech. China’s central government has blamed schools for helping to foment opposition to the ruling Communist Party. One opposition lawmaker in Hong Kong says the government’s moves will further hinder speech freedoms and have a negative impact on the education system in the city.

Nangka sets record for farthest cyclone to trigger a No 8 signal in Hong Kong it skirts by city

The Hong Kong Observatory issued a No 8 typhoon signal and kept it in place for most of the day on October 13, 2020, as tropical storm Nangka slowly passed about 450km (280 miles) to the southwest of the city. Nangka’s track was the furthest away from Hong Kong in 60 years of record-keeping to trigger the city’s third-highest storm alert. The signal led to closures of schools, restaurants and shopping malls, and suspension of public transport around the city. The typhoon signal was expected to be downgraded to a No 3 by the evening, as Nangka approached Hainan Island.

What started Hong Kong's third Covid-19 wave?

For months, Hong Kong was seen as an example of how a community could successfully contain Covid-19. The city was quick to isolate and trace infections and implemented measures to keep the public safe, moves which kept the number of cases relatively low.
