2 imported COVID-19 cases detected

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

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.
