The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating four additional COVID-19 cases, all of which are imported.   The cases involve three women and one man aged between 31 and 41 who arrived from Indonesia, South Korea, the Netherlands and India.   One of the patients, a 40-year-old man from India, arrived in Hong Kong on April 18 with an earlier imported case. He was classified as a close contact and underwent quarantine at the Penny's Bay Quarantine Centre until May 9.   After completing quarantine he stayed at his residence at Shing Fu House of Kwai Shing East Estate in Kwai Chung. He was tested at a community testing centre on May 13 and his result was negative.   On May 29, he was admitted to Princess Margaret Hospital due to his underlying illness and tested indeterminate for COVID-19 on admission. He then tested positive for immunoglobulin G.   As a prudent measure, Shing Fu House where the patient lives was included in the compulsory testing notice on May 30, under which relevant people are required to undergo testing by June 2.   The centre also announced that there is a preliminary positive case involving a 35-year-old male police officer.   He lives in Wai Mei House of Yau Mei Court in Yau Tong and works at Wan Chai Police District Headquarters and Wan Chai Police Division. Both places will be subject to compulsory testing.   The officer developed a sore throat, cough and runny nose on May 28 and went to a private doctor the next day. His deep throat saliva sample collected on May 30 tested positive for the virus.   Police said the officer last attended work today. He has no travel history in the past 14 days and wore masks while on duty.   All facilities in the office concerned have been sterilised and staff who might have had contact with the officer have been arranged to undergo COVID-19 testing.   A total of 13 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.
