HK reports 313 COVID-19 cases

May 4, 2022

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating 313 additional COVID-19 cases, of which 112 were detected by nucleic acid tests and 201 were identified via rapid antigen tests.


Among the new cases, 22 are imported while the rest are locally infected.


A total of 1,192,765 people have contracted the virus since the onset of the fifth wave of the epidemic, involving 9,115 deaths.


Meanwhile, the Government made restriction-testing declarations to cover Fung Shue House, Lei Muk Shue Estate in Tsuen Wan and Cheung Tin House, Pak Tin Estate in Sham Shui Po, requiring people in the restricted areas to undergo compulsory testing before the specified deadline.


Due to a number of positive cases, 40 specified places are included in a compulsory testing notice.


As there were positive sewage test results with relatively high viral loads in several housing estates in Tsuen Wan, Islands, Tai Po and Kwai Tsing districts, the Housing Department and the respective district offices will distribute COVID-19 rapid test kits to relevant residents as well as cleaning workers and property management staff working there.
