Nepal Air suspended after flying in 2 of today’s 7 Covid-19 cases

04 November 2021

By The SUN 

Nepal Air flight from Kathmandu has been suspended for 14 days

Seven additional confirmed cases of Covid-19 cases were recorded today, Nov 4, including two who flew in aboard Nepal Airlines flight RA409. As one other passenger reportedly failed to comply with pre-boarding requirements, the flight from Kathmandu has been suspected from today until Nov 17.

The other passengers included a domestic helper from Indonesia, two sea crew who came via vessel Nicolaos A from India, and two returnees from Pakistan who arrived via United Arab Emirates flight EK384 but on two different dates.

Five of the passengers carried the L452R mutant strain while a 44-year-old woman who came from Pakistan on Oct 25 had the N501Y mutation. The test result on the 37-year-old Indonesian helper was indeterminate as her sample did not have enough viral load.

The two patients who flew in from Nepal on Nov 2 included a 40-year-old woman and a 40-year-old man. They both tested positive on their arrival test. The woman was asymptomatic while the man developed symptoms the day before the flight.

The seafarers are both males, aged 35 and 49. They arrived on board their vessel on Nov 3 and tested positive for the mutated coronavirus on arrival. They are both asymptomatic.

Also testing positive on arrival was the 37-year-old helper from Indonesia who flew in on CX776 on Nov 2. She is asymptomatic.


The two returnees from Pakistan, who also included a 46-year-old woman, tested positive while in quarantine. They are asymptomatic.

The younger one came on Oct 25 and was staying at Dorsett Tsuen Wan Hotel while the older flew in on Oct. 22 and was spending her quarantine at Regal Oriental Hotel in Kowloon.

They took Hong Kong’s total number of confirmed Covid-19 cases to 12,359.


The Centre for Health Protection reminded the public to pay attention to their health and seek medical advice early and undergo Covid-19 testing as soon as respiratory symptoms develop.
