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 COVID-19 case in restricted area

The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise and enforcement operation for the Tuen Mun restricted area finished today with no confirmed COVID-19 case found.   It made a restriction-testing declaration last night, requiring people living at Block 6 of Handsome Court to stay in their premises and undergo compulsory testing. About 300 residents were tested.   In the subsequent enforcement operation, around 90 people were checked and 10 were found to have breached the compulsory testing requirement.   Government staff visited about 100 households, of which six did not answer the door. The households concerned should contact the Government as soon as possible to arrange testing.   People who stayed in the building for more than two hours from June 30 to July 22 must undergo compulsory testing by July 24 even if they were not present in the restricted area when the declaration took effect.
