They brought the total tally of infections in Hong Kong to 5,269. Of these, 116 remain in hospital, including 12 who are in critical condition, five who are seriously ill, and 99 in stable condition.

Infectious disease expert Ho Pak-leung has noted that the third wave of the outbreak seems to be easing with only a single-digit increase most days recently.

But he warned against complacency, saying there are still cases with unknown sources. He again said infections could surge anew when the weather becomes cold and dry.
