All are asymptomatic and fully vaccinated. The first four patients were found to carry the L452R mutant strain, while the traveler from Japan tested positive for N501Y.

The two women from Jordan both took QR 818 on Sept 27, the day before the flight was suspended from flying into Hong Kong for two weeks. That was due to six of its passengers testing positive for a coronavirus variant on Sept 26.


Another airline, Turkish Air, was banned from flying to Hong Kong for two weeks starting today after one of its passengers who came on Sept 26 also tested positive on his arrival test, while two others failed to comply with anti-epidemic regulations.

The two Filipinas came on two different days, but took the same flight. One is 35 years old, and flew in on Sept 24 via 5J272. She received two doses of Sinovac in the Philippine on Jun 28 and Jul 30.


The other Filipina is aged 37, and came on Sept 23 via the same flight from Manila. She also received the Sinovac vaccine in the Philippines on Jul 25 and Aug 22.

The two women from Jordan are aged 23 and 24, and they both had BioNTech jabs in Hong Kong beween July and August. They also tested positive for antibodies on Sept 1 and 4, respectively. Both were found infected on their arrival tests.


The 24-year-old traveler from Japan came via CX521 on Sept 25 and tested positive on her third day of quarantine at Regal Oriental Hotel in Kowloon. She had two doses of the Moderna vaccine in Japan on Jun 22 and Jul 23.

The new cases took Hong Kong’s total Covid-19 tally to 12,214. Fewer than five preliminary positive cases have been detected.
