CE mourns Tong Wai-ki

Chief Executive Carrie Lam today expressed deep sorrow over the passing of Hong Kong Taoist Association Chairman Tong Wai-ki.   She said Mr Tong was held in high regard, adding that he had been committed to promoting the Taoist religion and Chinese culture and actively participated in social services and charitable activities, making significant contributions over the years.   He was awarded the Silver Bauhinia Star in 2013.   "I am deeply saddened by the passing of Mr Tong. On behalf of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government, I would like to extend my deepest condolences to his family and the Taoist community," Mrs Lam noted.   Acting Secretary for Home Affairs Patrick Nip also expressed deep condolences over the passing of Mr Tong.   He commended Mr Tong for dedicating his life in promoting the Taoist religion and uniting the Taoist community while actively participating in charitable services and talent nurturing. http://dlvr.it/SHNxxJ

7 imported COVID-19 cases reported

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating seven additional imported COVID-19 cases involving patients who arrived from the UK, Turkey and the Philippines.   One of the cases involves a 68-year-old man who carries the L452R mutant strain, but not the N501Y or E484K mutant genes.   The patient, who stayed in Sunrise, Discovery Bay, travelled to the UK on August 15 and returned to Hong Kong on August 25. His specimen collected upon arrival at Hong Kong International Airport tested negative for COVID-19.   He developed symptoms including a cough, sore throat and running nose since August 25. Subsequently, his sample collected on August 27 at a designated quarantine hotel tested positive for the virus.   The centre is also investigating a re-positive overseas COVID-19 case carrying the L452R mutant strain which involves a 29-year-old woman.   She travelled to the UK, Spain and Portugal at the end of June and returned to Hong Kong on August 19. Her specimen collected upon arrival at the airport tested negative for COVID-19.   The patient received two doses of the BioNTech vaccine in Hong Kong in March and April. Her blood specimen collected on June 23 tested positive for anti-spike protein antibodies.   She stayed in a designated quarantine hotel from August 19 to 25. She lives at 208, Shek O Village in Shek O and went there after completing quarantine. Her specimen collected on August 27 at a community testing centre according to the compulsory testing requirement tested positive.   The patient said she developed symptoms in early August and tested positive for COVID-19 in Portugal. She underwent self-isolation and tested negative before departure. She was asymptomatic after returning to Hong Kong.   As a prudent measure, the buildings where the two patients had stayed and places they had visited during the incubation period were included in a compulsory testing notice.   Meanwhile, as Philippine Airlines flight PR300 from Manila and Turkish Airlines flight TK083 from Istanbul each had three passengers on board confirmed infected with COVID-19 by arrival testing, the Department of Health has prohibited the landing of the airlines' passenger flights from the two places from today to September 11.   Regarding the operators of goods vessels Asia Energy and Thor Monadic who were suspected of providing false information during the application for free pratique, the department has reported the cases to Police for their suspected contravention of the Prevention & Control of Disease Regulation.   A total of 68 cases were reported in Hong Kong in the past 14 days. One is a local case with an unknown infection source, while the rest are imported.   For information and health advice on COVID-19, visit the Government's dedicated webpage.
