A 38-year-old woman who arrived in Hong Kong from Manila was among 14 new cases reported today, Jun 25, by health authorities. 

She was said to be asymptomatic, but was transferred to Prince of Wales Hospital in Shatin for isolation and treatment.

Of the new cases, 12 were returning residents from Pakistan while one flew in from India.

They were all transferred to hospitals from quarantine centers, except for the woman who had flown in from Manila, who was moved from Regal Oriental Hotel in Kowloon where she was temporarily quarantined while waiting for her test results.

Records published by the Centre for Health Protection showed the woman had been in the Philippines from Mar 14 until she flew to Hong Kong yesterday.

No nationality was mentioned, but it would appear she is a Filipina, most likely a migrant worker, who got caught in the hard lockdown imposed by the Philippine government on Metro Manila starting Mar 16.



The new cases, aged between 2 and 39, brought Hong Kong’s total tally to 1,193 with one probable case.

The death toll rose to seven today, with a 55-year-old man who was airlifted from Manila on Jun 23 becoming the latest fatality.

The CHP says it is continuing its epidemiological investigations and relevant contact tracing on the confirmed cases.

The public is again warned to maintain good personal hygiene, keep social distancing and avoid going out and taking part in meal gatherings to reduce the risk of community transmission.

The CHP warning mentioned in particular infected persons who may not show symptoms, but could be highly contagious.

With the global tally for the coronavirus now nearing 10 million, people in Hong Kong are also advised to avoid unnecessary travel.
