HK Coronavirus related data

We're waiting for Yanning Yao to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Census and Statistics Department,

I am a Journalism student at the University of Hong Kong, and I am working on a data project concerning the relationship between poverty and coronavirus in Hong Kong. Could you please supply some information as below if it is available?
1. How many infection people have been found after mandatory testing of lock down buildings?
2. We only can get poverty data which based on 18 districts, is there any more granular (on a geographic level) data available?
3. What the Hong Kong rates of vaccination so far?

Thank you for your assistance,
Yours faithfully,
Yanning Yao
