124 COVID-19 cases reported

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating 124 additional COVID-19 cases. More cases were detected in Kwai Chung Estate. There are also more than 70 preliminary positive cases.   Among the newly reported cases, 33 are related to Kwai Chung Estate, bringing the total number of positive and preliminary positive cases in the estate to 276.   One more positive case was found after an earlier confirmed case occurred at Glory Court, Tsuen Wan Garden, both of them live in units 5 but on two different floors. The centre has co-ordinated with related government departments and conducted an inspection today.    It was preliminarily considered that vertical transmission of virus via pipes is involved.   The centre will issue quarantine orders to residents of unit 5 on all floors of the building who resided there during the incubation period of the relevant cases and transfer them to a quarantine facility.   As it is possible that virus might be ejected from the open

No virus cases in restricted area

The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise and enforcement operation for the restricted area in San Po Kong finished today with no confirmed COVID-19 cases found.   It exercised the power under the Prevention & Control of Disease (Compulsory Testing for Certain Persons) Regulation on February 23 to make a restriction-testing declaration, requiring people within the specified restricted area to stay in their premises and undergo compulsory testing.   They had to stay in their premises until all people in the area were tested and the results were mostly ascertained.   Additionally, the Government issued a compulsory testing notice to those who had been at the restricted area for more than two hours from February 10 to 23 to undergo compulsory testing before February 25 even if they were not in the restricted area when the declaration took effect.   Temporary specimen collection stations were set up in the restricted area for people subject to compulsory testing to have their combined nasal and throat swab samples collected for COVID-19 testing.   About 520 residents in the restricted area were tested.   Enforcement actions were carried out immediately after the compulsory testing exercise to verify that all people in the restricted area had undergone testing.   Six people who did not undergo mandatory testing were issued with a compulsory testing order.   Meanwhile, the Government assigned staff to visit 256 households, of which 56 did not answer the door. These include households with confirmed cases or undergoing quarantine and some units that are possibly vacant.   Those who did not answer the door are urged to contact the Government to arrange testing as soon as possible.
