HK sees 672 COVID-19 cases

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating 672 additional COVID-19 cases, of which 291 were directly identified through nucleic acid tests and 381 via rapid antigen tests which were verified.   Among the new cases, 59 are imported while the rest are locally infected.   The centre also received 106 reports of positive cases from 93 schools, involving 84 students and 22 staff.   Meanwhile, the Government made a restriction-testing declaration to cover Hung Chak House of Hung Fuk Court in Aberdeen. People in the restricted area are required to undergo compulsory testing before the specified deadline.   As there were positive sewage test results with relatively high viral loads in several areas of Central & Western, Tuen Mun and Tai Po districts, respective district offices will distribute COVID-19 rapid test kits to relevant residents as well as cleaning workers and property management staff working there.   For information and health advice on COVID-19, visit the Government’s dedicated webpage.
