Today's lone case is a female student who flew in from the UK on Apr 2, and tested negative initially

Today, Apr 16, marked the second day in a row that not a single locally acquired coronavirus disease or Covid-19, was recorded in Hong Kong.

There was only one case reported by the city’s health officials, and it involved a 19-year-old student who just recently returned from the United Kingdom, and initially tested negative for the virus.

Her case brought HK's total tally to 1,017, with about half of the patients still in hospital. 

Yesterday, three cases of residents testing positive after returning from overseas were reported, and no local one.

Dr Chuang Shuk-kwan of the Centre for Health Protection said today’s patient flew to Hong Kong from London on Apr 2, and tested negative for the virus. But in line with government health protocol she was put under mandatory home quarantine for 14 days.

On Apr 13 she returned home from quarantine and felt a tingling sensation in her throat, but paid no need. 

Yesterday, she ran a fever, so she sought treatment at Caritas Hospital where she was tested again for the virus. This time, the result was positive.
