1 imported COVID-19 case found

September 15, 2021

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating one additional imported COVID-19 case involving a 45-year-old woman who arrived from the UK.


She had received two doses of the Sinovac vaccine in Hong Kong on May 3 and 31, and her blood specimen tested positive for anti-spike protein antibodies on July 23.


In view of a previous imported case with the L452R mutant strain, five specified premises the patient had visited are covered in the latest compulsory testing notice for additional testing.


Six schools are subject to compulsory testing after reporting outbreaks of upper respiratory tract infection or influenza-like illness.


A total of 41 cases were reported in Hong Kong in the past 14 days, all of which are imported.
