3.7k local virus cases identified

September 25, 2022

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is looking into 3,780 additional locally acquired COVID-19 cases, of which 1,084 were identified through nucleic acid tests and 2,696 via rapid antigen tests.


Separately, 117 imported cases were found.


Two residential care homes for the elderly logged two virus cases involving their residents.


Due to a number of positive cases, 56 specified places are included in a compulsory testing notice. It also covers nine specified premises in Fanling, Tseung Kwan O, Sai Wan Ho and Tsuen Wan where some sewage samples tested positive for the virus.


The Government will reopen the mobile specimen collection stations at Wah Fu (II) Estate in Pok Fu Lam, Lei Muk Shue Estate in Tsuen Wan, Shek Yam East and On Yam estates in Kwai Chung tomorrow, while the stations at Wah Kwai Estate in Pok Fu Lam and Cheung Ching Estate in Tsing Yi will extend their services to September 27.


Since there were positive sewage test results with relatively high viral loads in several areas in Tai Po, Tuen Mun, Wan Chai and Kowloon City districts, 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.
