It's  the second time this month a compulsory testing order was issued for World-Wide Plaza 

WorldWide Plaza, the shopping mall frequented by Filipinos, has been put under compulsory testing again, following the discovery that a Filipina domestic helper who had been there on Sunday, May 16 was carrying the coronavirus variant.


Another place she visited that has been put under the same order is the Central and Western District Promenade (area by the harbour) except Tamar Park on Lung Wo Road. Anyone who had been to the area on May 9 or May 16 must undergo testing.

Meanwhile, an overnight lockdown of Tower 6 of Island Harbourview in Tai Kok Tsui ended at 9:30am today, with no one being found infected. The housing block is where the employer of the 46-year-old infected worker resides.

A government statement said no one among 380 residents they checked failed to comply with the compulsory testing order. Occupants of a further 40 flats are still being contacted.


Meanwhile, two other premises where a nurse who also tested preliminary positive on Sunday have also been put under compulsory testing.

No lockdown was imposed on the two premises as the nurse did not carry the N501Y variant.
