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 virus case in restricted area

The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise and enforcement operation for the Tsuen Wan restricted area finished today with no confirmed COVID-19 cases found.   It made a restriction-testing declaration last night, requiring people living at Block 1, Bo Shek Mansion, 328 Sha Tsui Road to stay in their premises and undergo compulsory testing. As at midnight, around 570 residents were tested.   In the subsequent enforcement operation, about 275 people’s test records were checked. One person was found to have not undergone mandatory testing and was issued with a compulsory testing order.   Government staff also visited about 200 households in the restricted area, of which eight did not answer the door. Follow-up measures will be taken.   According to the compulsory testing notice, people who stayed in the building for more than two hours from July 30 to August 22 must undergo compulsory testing by August 24 even if they were not in the restricted area when the declaration took effect.
