May 11, 2022

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating 280 additional COVID-19 cases, of which 131 were detected by nucleic acid tests and 149 were identified via rapid antigen tests.


Among the new cases, 32 are imported while the rest are locally infected.


A total of 1,194,740 people have contracted the virus since the onset of the fifth wave of the epidemic, involving 9,142 deaths.


Meanwhile, the Government made a restriction-testing declaration to cover Fuk On House of Ka Fuk Estate in Fanling, requiring people in the restricted area to undergo compulsory testing before the specified deadline.


Due to a number of positive cases, 20 specified places are included in a compulsory testing notice.


The mobile specimen collection station sevice at Hoi Fu Court in Mong Kok will be extended to May 13.


As there were positive sewage test results with relatively high viral loads in several housing estates and buildings in Tuen Mun, Yuen Long and North District, 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.
