Those who were at Deepwater Bay beach on Apr 25 & May 1 need to get tested

People who were in Deepwater Bay Beach in Island South on Apr 25 and May 1 are being ordered to get compulsory coronavirus tests after relatives of a Filipina infected with the South African variant attended two gatherings there.

A compulsory testing notice on people who were at the beach will have to be complied with before May 8.


The Centre for Health Protection said everyone who attended both gatherings will be moved to quarantine centers as the case involves the N501Y mutant strain.

The 31-year-old Filipina is a girlfriend of an Indian man who arrived Apr 4 from Dubai and was found infected with the variant after he had completed quarantine in Ramada Grand Hong Kong in Tsim Sha Tsui.

The woman lived with her boyfriend in Parkes Building in Jordan and eventually also tested positive for the dreaded strain on Apr 18.  

Earlier, the government said the Filipina’s family members held a gathering in a Sham Shui Po flat where three Filipina domestic workers who recently tested positive for the variant were among the guests.

The pandemic situation in Hng Kong continued to stabilize today, May 6, with two women, both domestic workers from the Philippines and Indonesia, the only confirmed new cases. None of them carried the mutant strain, the CHP said.

The Filipina, 42, arrived asymptomatic on a Philippine Airlines PR 300 flight from Manila on Apr 16. She was negative upon arrival and went to the Grand City Hotel in Sai Ying Pun for quarantine. She tested positive on her 19th day there, the CHP said.

The Indonesian, 32, arrived from Surabaya on Apr 23 on Cathay Pacific flight CX2870. She was also negative and asymptomatic on arrival. She checked into Ramada Hong Kong Grand in Tsim Sha Tsui and tested positive on her 12th day of quarantine.

The two new cases took Hong Kong’s total caseload to 11,799.


As of 9am today, a total of 88 confirmed patients were being treated in 15 public hospitals and the North Lantau Hospital Hong Kong Infection Control Centre, the Hospital Authority said.

Among them were three patients in critical condition, two in serious condition and the remaining 83 in stable condition.
