A building in Tsim Sha Tsui was locked down overnight, and all its residents in 40 units moved to evacuation centers after a resident was found infected with the N501Y coronavirus variant.

The 28-year-old housewife moved to Beauty Mansion at 69-71A Kimberley Road in Tsim Sha Tsui after completing her quarantine at Regal Oriental hotel on Apr 25.

She arrived in Hong Kong from Delhi, India on Apr 4 aboard the virus plagued flight UK6395 operated by TATA SIA Airlines (Vistara).

According to records from the Centre for Health Protection, she should be the 58th passenger from that flight to have been found infected with Covid-19.

According to a statement released by the government late on Monday, the patient sought medical advice at the accident and emergency department of Queen Elizabeth Hospital on Apr 26, where she was tested negative for the coronavirus.

She went for a test again at a community testing center Apr 30, in compliance with a mandatory testing order, and the result was indeterminate.


Because of this, she was admitted to hospital for further testing on May 2, and the result was preliminary positive, and she was also found positive for Covid-19 antibody, suggesting a prior infection.

Since she could have transmitted the virus to other people in the community from Apr 25 to May 2, the CHP said it ordered the transfer of all asymptomatic residents of Beauty Mansion to quarantine centres for 21 days. Anyone with symptoms will be sent to the hospital for treatment.

She was the fifth variant carrier to have been found within Hong Kong. 

The first was a 29-year-old Indian returnee from Dubai who was found with the South African strain of the virus 10 days after being released from hotel quarantine. The second was his 31-year-old girlfriend with whom he lived in Jordan after being released from quarantine.

The third was a 38-year-old Filipina DH who tested positive for the variant shortly after moving in with her employers on Kennedy Road in Mid-Levels. Experts believe she acquired the virus from her hotel in Sai Ying Pun where two other guests on the same floor had earlier tested positive for the mutated variant.

The fourth was the Filipina DH in Tung Chung who did not have a recent travel history, and was originally reported to have acquired the variant from an unknown source. Her case prompted the evacuation of more than 1,000 residents of Tower 11 of Caribbean Coast where she lives with her employers.

The government also cited her case as the reason for ordering all 370,000 FDHs to get tested.

It now turns out the Filipina DH was in Citygate outlet in Tung Chung on the same day that the Indian couple had visited.
