According to a preliminary analysis, the cause of death for 13 patients was related to COVID-19, while that of the remaining 20 patients was unrelated.   It also registered six more critical cases, bringing the number of patients in critical condition to 99.   As there were positive sewage test results with relatively high viral loads in several areas of Tuen Mun, Yuen Long and Kowloon City districts, the respective district offices will distribute COVID-19 rapid test kits to relevant residents as well as cleaning

No virus case in restricted area

The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise for the restricted area in Jordan finished today with no confirmed COVID-19 case found.   It exercised the power under the Prevention & Control of Disease (Compulsory Testing for Certain Persons) Regulation on April 16 to make a restriction-testing declaration to require people within the specified restricted area at Parkes Building, 17-23 Parkes Street to stay in their premises and undergo compulsory testing.   The Government also issued a compulsory testing notice to those who had been at the building for more than two hours from April 9 to 16 to undergo mandatory testing by April 18 even if they were not at the building when the declaration took effect.   About 80 residents were tested.   Starting last night, the Centre for Health Protection has transferred asymptomatic residents of Parkes Building to quarantine centres, while symptomatic residents were sent to hospital for treatment.   So far, 81 residents have been transferred to quarantine centres.
