The Development Bureau announced today that private land within three land parcels that have been zoned for high-density housing development in the statutory outline zoning plans would be resumed for subsidised housing.        The three land parcels are in Yuen Long and Fanling. The 12,300 sq m of private land, together with adjoining government land of about 3,500 sq m, are expected to produce around 1,600 flats.   The Lands Department has started pre-clearance surveys at all three land parcels and will not accept new applications for lease modification and land exchange concerning these land parcels.   The Government will invoke the Lands Resumption Ordinance for the resumption work.

HK records 12 COVID-19 cases

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating 12 additional COVID-19 cases, one of which is locally transmitted and epidemiologically linked with a local case.   The new local case involves an 84-year-old man who lives in Block 2, Oi Fai House, Yau Oi Estate, Tuen Mun. His unit is adjacent to a previously confirmed case on the same floor.   The centre explained that it is proactively following up to investigate whether the infections of the cases are related.   Given environmental contamination on the same floor of the building cannot be excluded, the Department of Health will issue quarantine orders to all remaining asymptomatic residents on the 8th floor of Block 2, Oi Fai House in Yau Oi Estate and transfer them to quarantine centres while symptomatic residents will be sent to the hospital for treatment.   Separately, the centre is continuing its investigation of a confirmed case announced yesterday. The 31-year-old woman was a staff member working at a clinic located at the Centrium, 60 Wyndham Street, Central.   The centre has arranged the close contacts of the case, including clinic staff and patients, to undergo quarantine. It also called on people who had been present at the clinic to undergo a COVID-19 nucleic acid test.   Among the imported cases, seven arrived from India, three from the Philippines and one from the US.   A total of 175 cases have been recorded in the past 14 days, including 37 local ones, of which 12 have unknown infection sources.   For information and health advice on COVID-19, visit the Government's dedicated webpage.
