May 9, 2020

The Centre for Health Protection announced that as of 4pm today, no new COVID-19 cases have been recorded, leaving the number of confirmed cases in Hong Kong at 1,044 so far.


The centre again urged the public to maintain an appropriate social distance with other people to minimise the risk of infection.


It said people should go out less and avoid social activities such as having meals out or other gatherings to minimise the risk of coronavirus clusters emerging in the community.


As the COVID-19 situation remains severe and the number of cases reported around the world continues to rise, people are strongly urged to avoid all non-essential travel outside Hong Kong as well as maintain strict personal and environmental hygiene.


Additionally, the Hospital Authority reported that there are currently 90 patients under isolation and that 967 patients have been discharged upon recovery.
