The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating two additional imported COVID-19 cases involving patients who arrived from Greece and Turkey.


In relation to a confirmed case epidemiologically linked with imported cases and with the L452R mutant strain, those who had been at three specified premises during the specified period must undergo additional testing.


The Government will set up a mobile specimen collection station at North Transition Deck, L6, Terminal 1, Hong Kong International Airport tomorrow to provide a free testing service for those subject to compulsory testing.


A total of 74 cases were reported in Hong Kong in the past 14 days. One is a local case with an unknown infection source, while the rest are imported.
