3 imported COVID-19 cases identified

June 12, 2021

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating three additional COVID-19 cases involving three women who arrived from Indonesia.


As flight CX798 operated by Cathay Pacific from Jakarta yesterday had three passengers on board confirmed infected with COVID-19 by arrival tests, the Department of Health invoked the law to prohibit landing of the airline's passenger flights from Jakarta from today to June 25.


A total of 38 cases were reported in Hong Kong in the past 14 days, including three local cases, of which one is from an unknown source.


Meanwhile, those who had been at nine designated premises during the specified period in relation to a previous local case with the N501Y mutant strain have to undergo additional testing.


Additionally, the service period of the mobile specimen collection stations at King George V Memorial Park, Beech Street in Tai Kok Tsui, MacPherson Playground in Mong Kok, Arthur Street Temporary Playground in Yau Ma Tei and Hankow Road in Tsim Sha Tsui will be extended to June 27.
