A Filipina domestic helper who came from Manila and a local man who returned from a trip to the United States via South Korea were confirmed today, Sept 9, as the city’s latest coronavirus cases.

Both are fully vaccinated and carried the L452R mutant strain of the coronavirus,  the Centre for Health Protection said. They took Hong Kong’s infection tally to 12,139.

The Filipina, aged 33, arrived in Hong Kong at around 8pm on Tuesday, Sept. 7, aboard Cathay Pacific flight CX918 while the 56-year-old man flew in on Korean Air flight KE607 on the same evening.

Though asymptomatic, both tested positive for the variant strain on their arrival test.


CHP’s press release shows the Filipina received two BioNTech doses in the Philippines on Jul 1 and Jul 22.

The male patient who traveled to the US on Aug 18 received two BioNTech jabs in Hong Kong on Apr 10 and May 1. He tested positive for antibodies on Jul 24.


As he was in Hong Kong during part of the virus’ incubation period, the building where he lived at Amber Garden, 110 Blue Pool Road, Happy Valley and his workplace at Tesbury Centre, 28 Queen’s Road East, Wan Chai have been put under a compulsory testing notice.

Everyone who was at these two places at specified periods must undergo compulsory testing on or before tomorrow, Sept 10.


Separately, the CHP reminded those who had stayed at Block 1, Bo Shek Mansion on Sha Tsui Road in Tsuen Wan to undergo compulsory testing by tomorrow, saying this was in connection with an earlier case with the L452R strain.
