April 11, 2022

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating 1,407 additional COVID-19 cases, of which 13 are imported and the rest are locally infected.


Among the new cases, 698 were detected by nucleic acid tests while 709 were identified via rapid antigen tests.


More than 1.17 million people have contracted the virus since the onset of the fifth wave of the epidemic, involving 8,614 deaths.


This afternoon, the Government made restriction-testing declarations to cover Hei Lai House of Wah Lai Estate in Kwai Chung and Shui Fung House of Tin Shui (II) Estate in Tin Shui Wai, citing the viral load in sewage, information of relevant positive cases and other circumstantial factors.


People in the restricted areas must undergo compulsory testing before the specified deadline.


Separately, due to a number of positive cases, 30 specified places are included in a compulsory testing notice.


The Government will set up an additional mobile specimen collection station at the volleyball court outside Yam Hing House of Shek Yam East Estate in Kwai Chung tomorrow.
