The other Filipina DH, who is 23 years old, was staying at Silka Tsuen Wan Hotel. She arrived on Oct 16 via 5J272.

The lone male patient is a 28-year-old returning resident from Singapore who arrived on Oct 18 via SQ882. He was in quarantine at Silka Far East Hotel in Tsuen Wan when found infected.


All of the patients were fully vaccinated: the Indonesian with AstraZeneca, the Filipinas both with Sinovac, and the Singaporean with BioNTech.

Three were found to carry the L452 mutant strain of the coronavirus, while the test result of the older Filipina helper is still pending.


Hong Kong now has a total of 12,305 confirmed cases of Covid-19.

Meanwhile the city’s vaccination rate continues to climb slowly despite the government’s all-out effort to get more residents to take the Covid-19 jabs.

As at 8pm yesterday, around 4.56 million people had received at least one dose of a vaccine, accounting for 67.7% of the population aged 12 and above. 

About 8.9million doses have so far been administered in the city, meaning half of the recipients have already been fully vaccinated. 

According to the Department of Health, a total of 6,217 reports of adverse events following vaccination were received since the start of the inoculation program in March this year, accounting for 0.07 percent of the total vaccines administered.

Included in these adverse events are 46 cases of people who died within 14 days of receiving a vaccine. “None of the death cases was associated with vaccination,” said the report.
