Probe on crew infection updated

The Centre for Health Protection (CHP) today said the compulsory quarantine for 111 aircrew members of Cathay Pacific Airways, in relation to the same hotel in Germany where three imported COVID-19 cases involving local aircrew had stayed, could be lifted.   It explained that the decision was based on the latest epidemiological information concerning the three infection cases and arrangements have been made for the aircrew concerned to be released from the quarantine centre.   In the CHP's earlier investigations, the three patients claimed they had not left their hotel rooms during their stay in Frankfurt, implying that the hotel was the only possible common source of their infection.   Based on the findings of the investigation report submitted by Cathay Pacific on November 18, the centre followed up on the three cases for their itinerary during their layover in Frankfurt. They subsequently admitted that they had left their hotel rooms, visited places near the hotel multiple times and met each other or a friend outside it.   In parallel, the CHP has provided information on the three cases and the hotel they stayed at to the health authority of Germany. Investigation by such health authority found that no cases in Germany have been reported in connection with the hotel and there is no known outbreak in it.   As the genetic sequences of the three cases are highly similar and according to latest investigation findings, it is very likely that they acquired the infection from each other or a common source outside the hotel and the possibility of an outbreak in the hotel was relatively low.   The CHP has further carried out an investigation on the aircrew who have been put under quarantine in relation to the hotel and confirmed that 10 aircrew should be classified as close contacts of the three cases. They will continue to be quarantined.   For the remaining 111 aircrew members, they had a history of staying in the same hotel but had no contact with the three cases outside the hotel in Germany. Cathay Pacific has also verified that such aircrew had no contact with the three cases outside the hotel.   The CHP said it will further probe if any of the cases have violated the Prevention & Control of Disease (Disclosure of Information) Regulation and provided inaccurate information to hinder the public health investigation.   Enforcement action will be taken if necessary, it added.

Railway settlement exceeds limit

The construction works of a relocation project in Kowloon have been suspended after a settlement monitoring checkpoint exceeded the limit, the Government said today.   The project relocates supporting operational facilities of Tsim Sha Tsui Fire Station Complex, Fire Services Club and other fire services accommodations to To Wah Road in Kowloon.   The Government explained that the readings recorded in a settlement monitoring checkpoint installed inside the railway tunnel between Kowloon Station and Olympic Station of the MTR Tung Chung Line had reached 20.27mm on September 7. The preset trigger level for works suspension is 20mm.   For the sake of prudence, the Mass Transit Railway Corporation suspended relevant works within the railway protection area on the same day.   The Buildings Department and the Architectural Services Department deployed staff to inspect the affected railway tunnel and confirmed that it is structurally safe.   The Electrical & Mechanical Services
