【全港關注劏房平台 | 記者會】

今天我們出席 全港關注劏房平台 有關肺炎疫情?的記者招待會,講解劏房的渠務設計隱患使劏房戶在是次疫情爆發下面臨的嚴峻威脅?

??一般樓宇有安裝污水渠、反虹吸管及排氣喉處理排污?,同時有U型「隔氣彎管」以隔絕氣體病菌倒抽入屋。然而大部分劏房戶的渠務設計卻無法發揮以上的功能?‍♂️

??劏房一般會共用原先一個單位的一條主污水管及排氣喉,分拆去同時處理數間劏房污水,或會使其負荷過重?。加上部份劏房戶由於升高地台不足,無法安裝U型「隔氣彎管」,可能無法隔絕氣體及細菌病毒倒抽入屋,增加疫情的傳播風險?

??如劏房戶中有帶菌者,則不只有可能出現近期青衣長康邨和當年SARS淘大花園擴散上下層單位的情況,更恐怕會在同一層的其它劏房單位傳播

??根據屋宇署現行政策,劏房工程應受到「小型工程監管制度」監管。然而市面絕大部分的劏房均沒有無聘請專業人士及「入則」,屋宇署亦無主動巡查及執法,以致大量違法及不合規格的劏房出現,在是次疫情下更無法保障劏房戶的安全?

我們促請政府關注低收入劏房住戶的需要,長遠而言屋宇署應加強執法保障劏房住戶的安全,及訂立住屋標準落實適足住屋權?

【Subdivided Flat Platform | Press conference】

In view of the situation of the spreading Corona Virus Disease?, we attended the press conference held by the Subdivided Flat Platform, problems and threats brought by the drainage design in subdivided houses were discussed?.

?? In order to preclude sewage, tackles such as waste pipes, anti-siphonage pipe and exhaust duct were usually allocated in buildings. A U-shaped trap would also be installed to avoid bringing the virus into houses. Yet, most of the subdivided houses lack the above functions?‍♂️.

?? Usually, residents of subdivided houses would use a sewer pipe and exhaust duct collectively, which may create the problem of overload?. Worse still, some residents of subdivided houses could not install a U-shaped trap due to the inadequate raised floor. Under this circumstance, viruses are hard to avoid and may even be brought to the houses, the risk of spreading disease gradually intensified?.

?? If residents in the subdivided houses were infected, the disease may be spread not only through the premises above or below (e.g. the current cases in Cheung Hong Estate, Tsing Yi and the Amoy Gardens during SARS), but also the premises in the same floor).

?? According to the existing policies of Buildings Department, development of subdivided housed shall be monitored by the Minor Works Control System. Yet, professionals were not hired in most of the current construction of subdivided houses. Inspection and execution of policy were not launched by the Buildings Department as well. A large amount of illegal and substandard subdivided houses thus appeared. Under this circumstance, the safety of residents could not be ensured under the epidemic?.

Thus, we urged the government to focus on the needs of subdivided houses’ residents. It is hoped that the Buildings Department could strengthen the enforcement on subdivided houses, in order to protect the residents and eventually develop adequate housing.
