3 Filipina DHs under quarantine among 7 new Covid-19 cases

24 September 2020

By The SUN

Two of the infected Filipinas flew aboard CX 906, the other on PAL 300.

Three Filipina domestic helpers who arrived on two different dates this month are among seven new confirmed cases of Covid-19 reported today, Sept 24. They brought Hong Kong’s total tally to 5,057.

All three arrived on Sept. 12, a staff member of the Hong Kong Health Department said.

It was on the same day that another Filipina, Ermelyn Deno, tested positive on arrival at the airport. She was taken to a hospital for treatment, but on her discharge on Sept 19, was immediately removed or sent home by Immigration, reportedly because her employer had backed out of their contract.

Another FDH in the same situation was also sent home for the same reason on Sept 22.

However, Immigration staff have said there is no official policy to remove all newly arrived FDHs who test positive at the airport, or during quarantine, in Hong Kong.

Among those who could suffer the same fate are the three new cases.

Two flew aboard Cathay Pacific Flight CX 906, a 31-year-old woman staying at the Dorsett Hotel in Wanchai, and a 40-year-old quarantined in Silka Hotel in Yau Ma Tei.

The third, who is 40 years old,  was on board Philippine Airlines Flight PR 300, and stayed at the Dorsett n Wanchai.

No other information was given, as the regular press briefing conducted by the DH was not held for the second straight day because there were no local cases with unknown source, a major concern for health authorities.

Yesterday, there were only three new cases, the lowest daily tally since the third wave started in early July.

Yesterday's 3 cases were the smallest daily tally since early July

A fourth imported case is a 32-year-old female who arrived from Britain, and was quarantined at HK Skycity Marriott Hotel in Chek Lap Kok.

Reports now say the Hong Kong government will include Britain in its list of high-risk countries, for which all new arrivals will have to present a negative result for a nucleic acid test for Covid-19 before being allowed to depart their destination.

Ten countries were previously put in the list, including the Philippines, Indonesia, India, Pakistan, Kazakshtan and the United States.

Today’s three local cases linked to previous infections are two females aged 40 and 50, and a man aged 52. The women live in Tin Shui Wai and Tuen Mun, while the man’s address is not shown, indicating he was in a quarantine centre.
