May 23, 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 1,065 so far.


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


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, it added.


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 33 patients confirmed with COVID-19 are currently hospitalised and 1,029 confirmed and suspected patients have been discharged.
