The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating 3,362 additional locally acquired COVID-19 cases, of which 493 were identified through nucleic acid tests and 2,869 via rapid antigen tests.   Separately, 118 imported cases were detected.   Furthermore, seven residential care homes for the elderly and one for disabled people logged nine cases involving their residents.   The Hospital Authority reported that 33 patients passed away in public hospitals. 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

Recognised jab record list updated

The Government today announced that from October 27, it will accept COVID-19 jab records issued by Cambodia as recognised vaccination records for Hong Kong residents who have stayed in Group A specified places.   Hong Kong residents who hold vaccination records issued by the relevant authority of that country in the prescribed format can board a flight for Hong Kong from Group A specified places, it said.   The Government will also recognise the vaccination records issued by Kazakhstan and British Virgin Islands, which are non-Group A specified places, from October 27.   This will enable Hong Kong residents who have stayed in Group A specified places and hold jab records obtained from relevant authorities of these places in the prescribed format to board a flight for Hong Kong.   According to the Government's stringent inbound prevention and control measures for travellers from overseas places, those who have stayed in Group A specified places on the day of boarding or 21 days before that day can only board a flight for Hong Kong if they are Hong Kong residents who are fully vaccinated and holding recognised vaccination records.   In addition, the vaccines administered to the travellers must be those recognised by the Government.
