At 5:30 p.m. on the 12th, CE Lam, together with Secretary for food and health, Chen Zhaoshi, and Secretary for labour and welfare, Luo Zhiguang, met with the media at the CE Office of the Hong Kong government to explain the follow-up work of the government.
Lin said the government will continue to help families affected by the crash, including properly handling more than 40 million social donations. The SAR government will fly a flag at half mast at the government headquarters on Tuesday morning to mourn the victims, cancel the fireworks show on the lunar new year, donate the saved money to the affected families, and key government officials will avoid attending the celebrations in the coming weeks.
