One of the women who tested positive on arrival from Manila is now at Princess Margaret Hospital

Three women who flew into Hong Kong from Manila on different dates were among 11 new confirmed cases on Saturday, Jul 4.

The first is a 30-year-old woman who developed a cough one day before flying to Hong Kong on Jul 3. She was taken directly from the testing center at AsiaWorld-Expo to Princess Margaret Hospital in Kowloon after testing positive.

She has two close contacts listed in the report from the Centre for Health Protection, which could indicate that she’s a local resident.

The second is 38 years old, and was in the Philippines from Dec 15, 2019 until Jun 20, when she flew into Hong Kong. That would have meant her testing positive on the last day of her 14-day compulsory quarantine.

She was taken to Queen Mary Hospital from the Charterhouse hotel in Causeway Bay where she was quarantined. She was asymptomatic.

One of the women was about to end her quarantine when she tested positive
The third is 36 years old and was in the Philippines from Dec 26, 2019 until Jul 3 when she flew into Hong Kong.

For some unexplained reason she did not test positive while at the airport, but at Tower 2 of the Waterfront in Tsim Sha Tsui where she was on home quarantine. She was asymptomatic.


The rest of the new patients include: 

·          a 29-year-old woman who flew in from Indonesia on Jun 30 and developed a cough and sore throat the next day

·       a 54-year-old man who had been to Kazakhstan and Turkey and as a cargo pilot, was exempted from quarantine. He developed a cough five days before flying into Hong Kong on Jun 30, and took a saliva test on Jul 3. His wife and daughter who don’t have symptoms have been taken to a quarantine center.

·         four men aged 30, 36, 42 and 51 who all arrived on Jul 3 from Pakistan and were asymptomatic
·         a 62-year old woman who arrived from the United States on Jul 3 and was taken straight from the holding area at Regal Oriental Hotel to an unspecified hospital. She was asymptomatic.
