273 COVID-19 cases reported

May 10, 2022

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating 273 additional COVID-19 cases, of which 138 were detected by nucleic acid tests and 135 were identified via rapid antigen tests.


Among the new cases, 27 are imported while the rest are locally infected.


A total of 1,194,460 people have contracted the virus since the onset of the fifth wave of the epidemic, involving 9,139 deaths.


Meanwhile, the Government made restriction-testing declarations to cover Fuk Tai House and Fuk Lok House of Ka Fuk Estate in Fanling, 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.


The mobile specimen collection stations at Chuk Yuen North Estate in Wong Tai Sin and Cheung Shan Estate in Tsuen Wan will reopen tomorrow, while the ones at Tai Kok Tsui Sports Centre, Tsuen King Circuit Sports Centre in Tsuen Wan, Fung Kam Street Sports Centre in Yuen Long and Wo Hing Sports Centre in Fanling will stop service from mid-May.


As there were positive sewage test results with relatively high viral loads in several housing estates and buildings in Kwun Tong, Sham Shui Po and Wong Tai Sin 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.
