The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating two additional COVID-19 cases involving men who arrived from Tanzania and the US.   Meanwhile, the centre was notified yesterday of a confirmed case in the UK concerning a 46-year-old man who left Hong Kong for London on Cathay Pacific flight CX251 on July 15. His specimen collected on July 17 tested positive for COVID-19. He was asymptomatic. The centre is following up on the case with the British health authority and epidemiological investigations are underway.   As a prudent measure, Rosedale Hotel Hong Kong, Causeway Bay where the patient had stayed during the incubation period was put under a compulsory testing notice last night, requiring people who had been at the venue for more than two hours from July 4 to 28 to get tested on or before July 31.   A total of 25 cases were reported in Hong Kong in the past 14 days and all of them were imported.   For information and health advice on COVID-19, visit the Gover

Fountain misconduct case followed up

The Leisure & Cultural Services Department today said it is considering taking legal action against the people involved in misconduct and using liquid soap at Kwun Tong Promenade's music fountains and interactive wet play areas.   In a statement, the department said the music fountains and wet play areas had been closed for thorough cleaning.   It reminded members of the public to behave in an orderly and decent manner and be properly clothed when visting these areas. They should also not obstruct, disturb or annoy other people in their proper use of the playground.   The Pleasure Grounds Regulation also states that no person shall bathe, wade or wash in any ornamental lake, pond, stream or water.   Offenders are liable to prosecution and subject to a maximum fine of $2,000 and imprisonment for 14 days.
