My thanks to healthcare workers

A hydrofoil travelling from Macau to Hong Kong collided with a floating object in the waters near Siu A Chau yesterday evening, causing injuries to over 100 passengers. The injured were sent to seven hospitals, and 37 of them are still hospitalised at the time of writing. I would like to extend my sympathy to the injured and wish them a speedy recovery.

On hearing the news last night, many healthcare workers who were on leave or off duty returned to their posts immediately to take care of the injured without being asked by their respective hospitals. This speaks volumes about their professionalism.

Our healthcare workers have a fine tradition of serving the community of Hong Kong.  They truly deserve our commendation.
