Testing compliance check done

The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise and enforcement operation for 35-37 Nam Cheong Street in Sham Shui Po finished today with no positive COVID-19 cases found.   It made a restriction-testing declaration yesterday evening, requiring people in the specified area to stay in their premises and undergo mandatory testing. About 50 people were tested.   In the subsequent enforcement operation, about 20 people’s test records were checked. No one was found to have not received compulsory testing.   Government staff also visited around 20 households in the area, of which five did not answer the door. Such households are urged to contact the Government promptly to arrange testing.   According to the compulsory testing notice issued yesterday, those who had stayed in 35-37 Nam Cheong Street within a specified period for more than two hours must get tested by tomorrow even if they were not in the restricted areas when the declarations took effect. http://dlvr.it/S

3 imported COVID-19 cases identified

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating three additional imported COVID-19 cases involving patients who arrived from Israel, Japan and Qatar.   One of them, a 36-year-old woman, lives in Tung Shun Hing Building, 22 Chi Kiang Street in To Kwa Wan and received two doses of the BioNTech vaccine in June and July in Hong Kong.   She tested negative in Hong Kong on August 21 and travelled to Nigeria on August 22. She returned on September 10 by flight QR818, and her specimen collected upon arrival tested positive for COVID-19 and carried the L452R mutant strain.   She works at 28/F, Lee & Man Commercial Centre in North Point, and was last there on August 21.   Epidemiological investigation and contact tracing are ongoing. As a precaution, the building where the patient resided and worked during the incubation period have been included in a compulsory testing notice. Specified people who had been present at the relevant venues at specified periods must undergo compulsory testing by tomorrow.   A total of 47 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.
