Ho Hau Wah, vice-chairman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, and Macao Secretary for Economy and Finance Lei Wai Nong will both be undergoing mandatory 14-day quarantine when they return from Hong Kong where they attended the late Stanley Ho’s funeral ceremonies.
Both represented the Macao government in the final farewell of the late casino tycoon.
Former Macao chief executive Ho Hau Wah was one of the pallbearers alongside Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam, former Hong Kong chief executive Tung Chee-hwa, liaison office director Luo Huining, and his deputy Tan Tieniu.
According to Rádio Macau, the information was given today during a press conference by Alvis Lo Iek Long from Conde São Januário Hospital Centre.
“Recently, the epidemic situation in Hong Kong has become more serious, so everyone who has travelled to Hong Kong has to follow our rules and undergo 14 days medical observation. Nobody is exempt. These measures are to ensure the health of the citizens of Macao,” he said.
According to the radio station, Lei will stay either at the Sheraton Hotel or Pousada Marina Infante, the two locations designated by the Macao Heath Services for quarantine.
Ho will stay in a “undisclosed place” for security reasons.
