Q: Can fire exits at residential complexes and buildings be shut?

A: It is strictly forbidden to block or seal off safety exits, or misappropriate access for fire brigade vehicles for virus control reasons. 

According to the Law on Fire Protection, no institutions or individuals may damage, misappropriate, dismantle or deactivate firefighting equipment without authorization. Evacuation passages, safety exits and fire truck access shall not be occupied, blocked or closed off. Doors and windows in crowded places shall not be equipped with barriers that could affect escape and firefighting rescue efforts. 

Q: How can COVID-19 control malpractices be curbed?

A: The 20 adjusted measures announced on Nov 11 said that rectification efforts will be stepped up to curb the one-size-fits-all approach and casual adoption of extra COVID-19 restrictions. 

Public reports and exposure of such policies will be highlighted and violators whose actions result in serious consequences will be held accountable. In addition, task forces committed to urging rectification have been set up across different government levels.
