July 9, 2021

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating one additional COVID-19 case involving an 18-year-old man who arrived from the Netherlands.


A total of 43 cases were reported in Hong Kong in the past 14 days, including two import-related cases.


As Asiana Airlines flight OZ721 arriving from Seoul on July 6 had one passenger on board confirmed to have COVID-19 by arrival test and another passenger that failed to comply with the requirement under the Prevention & Control of Disease (Regulation of Cross-boundary Conveyances & Travellers) Regulation, the Department of Health prohibited the landing of Asiana Airlines passenger flights from Seoul from July 10 to 23.


Specified places related to previous COVID-19 cases with the L452R mutant strain as well as a school where an outbreak of upper respiratory tract infection and influenza-like illness had occurred are now included in the compulsory testing notice
