Gathering restrictions might be reimposed if a new local outbreak takes place

Hong Kong media have reported that a 66-year-old housewife with no travel history has tested positive for Covid-19 today, May 12.

The news came shortly after the Centre for Health Protection announced that no new case of the coronavirus disease was reported, marking the 24th day that no local infection had been detected. All of the recent cases involved newly arrived residents from overseas.
The reports say health authorities are still awaiting the result of the second test on the woman before declaring her as a confirmed case.

However, she has already been admitted to Princess Margaret Hospital in Kwai Chung for isolation and treatment.

Four of her relatives have reportedly shown symptoms as well, and were also isolated in hospitals pending tests.

The woman was reported to have had no contact with Covid-19 patients, and has not traveled abroad.

Her deep-throat saliva sample collected at a clinic in Kwai Chung earlier showed she had the disease.

Her case brings Hong Kong’s total to 1,048, with four deaths. Nearly all, save for about 50 patients, have been discharged from hospital after recovering.


A new local infection with no known source could derail government’s plans to further ease distancing restrictions, as it could lead to a second wave of outbreaks.

Hong Kong has just scaled back its preventive measures, ordering all government offices to resume services and for staff to report back to work starting this week.

The gathering ban was also relaxed to allow a maximum of eight people to get together in public, from the previous four. And several business establishments, including cinemas, bars and massage and beauty parlors, have just been allowed to reopen.
