Tai Wo Hau testing check done

The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise and enforcement operation for Fu Keung House in Tai Wo Hau Estate finished today with no positive COVID-19 cases found.   It made a restriction-testing declaration yesterday evening, requiring people in the specified area to stay in their premises and undergo mandatory testing. About 1,150 people were tested.   In the subsequent enforcement operation, about 335 people’s test records were checked. Twenty-four people were found to have not received compulsory testing.   Government staff also visited around 720 households in the area, of which 40 did not answer the door. Such households are urged to contact the Government promptly to arrange testing.   According to the compulsory testing notice issued yesterday, those who had stayed in Fu Keung House within a specified period for more than two hours must get tested by tomorrow even if they were not in the restricted area when the declaration took effect. http://dlvr.it/

8 imported COVID-19 cases recorded

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating eight additional imported COVID-19 cases, all of which are asymptomatic and had received two doses of either the Sinovac or BioNTech vaccine.   Among them, two cases reside in Hong Kong. One of them is a 60-year-old man who lives at Valiant Park, Mid-Levels, while the other case involves a 43-year-old woman living at Block 6, Peak One, Tai Wai.   They travelled to Kyrgyzstan on August 20 and tested negative in Hong Kong on the day of departure. They returned to the city on September 3 and their specimen collected at Hong Kong International Airport tested positive for COVID-19 with the L452R mutant strain but not the N501Y or E484K mutant genes.   Both of them had received two doses of the BioNTech vaccine.   A total of 66 cases were reported in Hong Kong in the past 14 days, all of which are imported.   For information and health advice on COVID-19, visit the Government's dedicated webpage.
