The only confirmed case is a seafarer from India who tested positive at the airport

Hong Kong has continued its streak of zero local infections when it announced only one imported Covid-19 case today, May 19. 

The confirmed patient is a 28-year-old male seafarer from India who tested positive on arrival at the airport. Air and sea crew are exempted from the flight ban imposed on countries classified as “extremely high-risk”, which includes India, Pakistan, the Philippines and Nepal.


He brought Hong Kong’s total Covid-19 tally to 11,828.

In the past two weeks, a total of 36 cases had been reported, eight of them local, of which one is  from an unknown source.

That untraceable case pertains to a four-year-old boy who might yet be declared as false positive as his tests at the hospital reportedly showed he did not have coronavirus. Neither does he have antibodies, which suggest a healed infection.

Meanwhile, the Centre for Health Protection said it is investigating an overseas case. It involves a 43-year-old male patient who was found positive for Covid-19 after arriving in Shanghai from Hong Kong on May 16.

According to CHP, the man arrived in Hong Kong on Apr 22 from Italy, taking flight QR 818 operated by Qatar Airways. The man declared on arrival that he tested positive for Covid-19 in Italy in late February.

He underwent hotel quarantine in Ramada Hong Kong Harbour View in Sai Ying Pun from April 22 to May 12, during which he tested negative for the coronavirus.


He then stayed in Harbour Plaza Resort City from May 13 to 16, before taking flight CX368 to Shanghai on May 16.

The CHP said it is conducting epidemiological investigations and contact tracing in the said case.
