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

Virus tests in restricted area done

The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise and enforcement operation for the Tin Shui Wai restricted area ended today with no confirmed COVID-19 cases found.   It made a restriction-testing declaration last night, requiring people at Block 2 of Grandeur Terrace to stay in their premises and undergo compulsory testing. Around 1,122 residents were tested.   In the subsequent enforcement action, about 390 people's test records were checked, among which eight people were found to have not undergone mandatory testing.   The Government also assigned staff to visit around 370 households, of which 32 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 have stayed in the building for more than two hours from December 17 to 31, 2021, must undergo compulsory testing by tomorrow even if they were not in the restricted area when the declaration took effect.
