Liu Yulong said that the society must learn to focus on preventing severe death is the direction to get out of the pandemic. The main premise of coexisting with the virus is to increase the vaccination rate to the whole population, so as to reduce the mortality rate of the new crown virus from the original two percentage points to 1,000. In this way, the medical system will not be overwhelmed, social and economic activities will have a chance to return to normal, and Hong Kong will have the conditions to turn the pandemic into an endemic disease. He said he hoped that another 300,000 seniors over the age of 70 would receive the first dose of the new crown vaccine before the Lunar New Year to deal with the risk of large-scale transmission of Omicron in the community in the coming weeks.
