The 3 local infections in 2 days raised fears of a new cluster of cases being found
 A 30-year-old man who worked in the same congee and noodle shop in  Kwun Tong as another man found infected yesterday, was among 17 new cases reported in Hong Kong today, Jul 6.

The Centre for Health Protection said the latest patient lives in Fook Cheung Building in Tai Kok Tsui.
He developed a sore throat on Saturday, one day after seeing his infected colleague, a 59-year-old cook at the restaurant in Ping Shek estate.

The new patient was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Yaumatei for treatment.


As a precautionary measure, specimen bottles are being distributed to residents in the housing block where the man lives, as well as to recent customers of the restaurant where he works.

Today's case is the third locally acquired infection to be reported in two days. Aside from his colleague, a 41-year-old woman who works in a clinic in Cheung Sha Wan also tested positive for Covid-19 yesterday.
Of the 16 imported cases reported today, eight are new arrivals from Pakistan, seven from India, and one from Indonesia. They comprise 12 males and five females aged between three and 78.


They brought Hong Kong’s total tally to 1,286.
