The newly released Macau health code application by the Health Bureau (SSM), which records movements, has already registered over 30,000 downloads. Officials stressed that the data would only be stored in the users’ mobile device for 28 days, after which period it will be deleted. Dr Leong Oi Sam of SSM’s Centre for Disease Control and Prevention said the bureau is looking into dividing a venue into different areas each with their own QR code. The suspension or cancellation of the website version of the health code is being considered.

October CPI rises slightly

The Composite CPI for October rose by 0.91% to 102.84, data from the Statistics and Census Service (DSEC) showed. The increment was attributed to higher gasoline prices, higher charges for eating out, and increasing airfares and wages for domestic helpers. The price was partially offset by lower residency rentals and lower pork prices. Among the various sections of goods and services, the price indices of Transport and Household Furnishings & Services went up, whereas that of Communication and Clothing & Footwear fell.
