A fourth Filipina domestic worker is confirmed to have the coronavirus disease, Covid-19. She was among four new cases reported earlier today (Mar 8), bringing the total number in Hong Kong to 113.

The Philippine Consulate confirmed the patient’s nationality in a brief statement issued at about 9pm tonight. It said the Filipina, who is 47 years old,  is “in good spirits and not showing any symptoms.”

“Following the discharge of one patient last Friday, the total number of Filipino Covid-19 positive patients stands at three (3). The Philippine Consulate General in Hong Kong is extending all necessary assistance to them.


Local media reports say the fourth Filipina to catch the disease is one of two domestic workers of Yvonne Chow, a socialite member of the Hong Kong Jockey Club who tested positive on Feb. 25.

Chow’s other helper, a 29-year-old Filipina, was taken to Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital after showing symptoms, and was confirmed to have the disease the next day, Feb. 26.

At the time, the second helper was asymptomatic but was put under quarantine along with Chow’s husband and son.

Chow is believed to have passed on the virus to her brother, sister-in-law and pet Pomeranian, the first known human to animal transmission of Covid-19.

The three other cases reported today included a 76-year-old man who recently visited India. He began to have diarrhea on Mar 2 and sought hospital treatment afterwards.

Another is a 41-year-old British national who had been to Japan and London on business trips before returning to Hong Kong.


The third case is a 55-year-old man who lives in North Point and is the husband of an infected woman.

Meanwhile, the University of Hong Kong is arranging virus tests for two top officials after a 38-year-old woman who was among Hongkongers airlifted last week from Hubei province, was diagnosed with the coronavirus yesterday.
