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 cases in restricted area

The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise and enforcement operation for the Shek Tong Tsui restricted area ended today with no confirmed COVID-19 cases found.   It made a restriction-testing declaration last night, requiring people at One South Lane to stay in their premises and undergo compulsory testing. Around 80 residents were tested.   In the subsequent enforcement action, 34 people's test records were checked. One person was found to have not undergone mandatory testing and was issued with a compulsory testing order.   The Government also assigned staff to visit around 90 households, of which about 35 did not answer the door. Follow-up measures will be taken.   According to the compulsory testing notice issued yesterday, people who had stayed in the building for more than two hours from December 5 to 27 must undergo testing by December 29 even if they were not in the restricted area when the declaration took effect.
