By The SUN 

The 4 infected FDHs arrived on various dates last month

Four foreign domestic helpers, three from Indonesia and one from India, were the only confirmed cases of Covid-19 reported in Hong Kong today, May 10. No one was found to carry the coronavirus variant.

It marked the second straight day that no new local cases were found, and continued a streak of single-digit infections in the city.


According to staff at the Centre for Health Protection, the Indian DH arrived on Apr 18 via flight UK 6397, just two days before Hong Kong imposed a flight ban on India, Pakistan and the Philippines, which remains to this day.

The 36-year-old woman was on her 19th day in quarantine at Grand City Hotel in Sai Ying Pun when she was found infected.

They took the number of cases in Hong Kong to 11,812.

A top microbiologist says HK is lucky that the variant that spread recently was not virulent 

Meanwhile, a microbiologist from the University of Hong Kong has told RTHK that the city has been lucky to have escaped an outbreak of a more virulent strain of the coronavirus.

Siddhart Sridhar was referring to the a cluster of infections linked to an Indian man who flew in from Dubai and apparently caught the variant first found in South Africa during his hotel quarantine.


Seven people in Hong Kong caught the mutant virus from him, including his girlfriend and her mother, three domestic helpers and an employer and her 10-month-old baby.

Sridhar said wearing masks probably helped, but warned Hong Kong may not be as lucky next time.

He said authorities should remain cautious, since the virus is now seen to have a longer incubation period. He also said the coronavirus is here to stay, and vaccination is the only way out of the pandemic.
