The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating 10 additional COVID-19 cases, of which two are locally transmitted including one with an unknown source of infection.

 

The new cases involve one male and nine females aged between three and 70.

 

The unlinked case is a 70-year-old retired woman who was asymptomatic. She was admitted to Tuen Mun Hospital on April 6 for another medical condition and tested positive during admission screening.

 

The eight imported cases arrived from the Philippines and Indonesia.

 

A total of 120 cases have been recorded in the past 14 days, including 26 local ones, of which nine have unknown infection sources.

 

Additionally, since a few confirmed patients had visited H.A.N.D.S. at On Ting Estate in Tuen Mun, the mall is now covered in the compulsory testing notice.

 

The Government will set up a mobile specimen collection station at On Ting/Yau Oi Community Centre in Tuen Mun tomorrow for all members of the public, including those subject to compulsory testing.
