Chuang says residents in 7 buildings have been ordered to undergo testing

CHP’s Dr Chuang Shuk-kwan said mandatory testing has been issued for residents of several buildings in various districts after new untraceable infections were found in all of them.


Among the buildings she mentioned were 95-99 Cheung Sha Wan Road in Sham Shui Po, 66A Parkes Street in Jordan,  63 Pokfulam Road, 11-17 Fort Street in North Point, Block K of Tun Man House in Oi Man Estate in Ho Man Tin, 8 Station Lane in Tai Wai, and 8-12 Wilmer Street, Sai Ying Pun. 

Under tighter testing rules, a single infection in any residential or commercial building will trigger compulsory testing for everyone who had stayed there for more than two hours within the past 14 days.
