The Filipino man, 38, and the elder Qatari woman, 26, both carried the L452R mutant strain of the coronavirus. The variant test result of the younger sister is pending, a government information service staff said.   

The Filipino arrived on Sept 17 from Manila on Cebu Pacific flight 5J272 and his specimen taken at Hong Kong International Airport tested positive for Covid-19, the staff said.


CHP records show the man received two doses of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on Mar 23 and Apr 13 in Hong Kong while he tested positive for antibodies on Jul 26.

The two sisters arrived separately. The elder sister flew into Hong Kong on Sept 15 via Qatar Air flight QR818 from Doha and stayed at The Courtyard by Marriott in Sai Ying Pun. Her specimen on Day 3 of her quarantine tested positive yesterday. 


The patient’s 25-year-old sister arrived on Sept 11 also on a QR818 fight. She was moved to a government quarantine center from her hotel after being identified as a close contact of the older sister. She tested positive there seven days after arrival, the staff said.

The older patient received two doses of CoronaVac vaccine in China on Jul 7 and Jul 28 while her sister had two BioNTech jabs in Hong Kong on Mar 19 and Apr 10. The younger woman also tested positive for antibodies on Jul 7.


The three new cases took the number of cases in Hong Kong to 12,161. A total of 44 cases have been reported in the past 14 days ending Sept 18, all of them imported.
