Who are we?
With the sudden outbreak of COVID-2019 (novel coronavirus), Hong Kong's first case of the disease was confirmed on 23 January 2020. In view of the disease becoming increasingly threatening, the vote4hk team started collecting information both from internet and government sources on 26 January. Two days later, we uploaded this website, "COVID-19 in HK", where we aim to integrate information about high-risk areas, patients’ conditions, information about dubious stores and health tips.
Back in 2019, we developed vote4.hk, a website where we aggregated background information of district council constituencies, candidates running in the election, data on previous elections, election results, and more.
The operation of this site depends on the restless hard work of our volunteers, who verify and update the contents whenever necessary. The developers also endeavour to add new functions to the website whenever possible. Also, we owe our gratitude to g0vhk and Station for Open Cultures, who fully supported this website and contributed valuable suggestions to our team.
Your donation will help g0vhk and Station for Open Cultures in organising more activities to promote an open culture and civil technology. It will also become the fund for them to start new projects, part of your donation will be used to subsidise their costs in providing cloud services.
We would also like to thank the 4 university students who set up the website "sosick.org" during the 2003 SARS outbreak, where they maintained a list of SARS hotspots and gathered news about the outbreak. Their efforts helped HKers overcome SARS, and inspired us to follow in their footsteps 17 years later.Vote4.hk
