July 21, 2021

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating five additional COVID-19 cases involving patients who arrived from Bangladesh, Saudi Arabia, Cambodia and the United Arab Emirates.


In view of an imported case recorded today and another imported case recorded earlier involving the L452R mutant strain, four specified premises visited by the patients are included in the compulsory testing notice.


The compulsory testing requirement applies to those who have completed a COVID-19 vaccination course as well.  


Additionally, a school is also covered in the compulsory testing notice due to an outbreak of upper respiratory tract infection and influenza-like illness. 


A total of 21 cases were reported in Hong Kong in the past 14 days, including 20 imported cases and one import-related case.
