The Centre for Health Protection today said it is following up on a preliminary positive COVID-19 case that involves the N501Y mutant strain.   The centre explained that residents of Kennedy Terrace, 8 Kennedy Road in Mid-levels where the patient resided must be quarantined.   Noting that the N501Y mutant strain is with high transmissibility, the centre said it decided to carry out prudent measures on infection control and prevention to arrange a 21-day compulsory quarantine for asymptomatic residents of the building concerned to stop the potential risk of spreading the N501Y mutant strain.   Residents who are symptomatic will be sent to hospitals for treatment, it added.   Meanwhile, as the case concerned had stayed on the 6/F of Ramada Hong Kong Harbour View Hotel in Sai Ying Pun, quarantine orders will be issued to people who stayed on the same hotel floor as the patient from April 4 to 7, while those who stayed in the hotel between March 27 and April 23 are required to undergo testing by April 25.
