23 March 2020

By The SUN (UPDATED)

HK may shut down bars and restaurants in LKF because of the cluster cases traced to the entertainment spot 

A 29-year-old Filipino musician who sings with a band in Lan Kwai Fong has tested positive for the coronavirus disease, Covid-19, the sixth case and first Filipino non-domestic worker to have been infected in Hong Kong.

A bulletin issued by the Philippine Consulate just a few minutes ago this afternoon of Mar 23, said three (edited as of 5:30pm) other Filipinos have tested positive for Covid-19 within the past 24 hours, making the total cases to 10. 

Six are in hospitals, while the four others had been released after recovering.

No additional information on the three new cases have yet been made available.

The Consulate says it is extending all necessary assistance to the patients.

The musician who colleagues say had sung for the popular nightspot Insomnia, was among the 44 new cases listed by the Centre for Health Protection yesterday.

He reportedly started running a fever, and had cough and sore throat, on Mar 17. He did not travel within the 14-day incubation period.

The Wanchai resident is now confined at Caritas Medical Centre in Shamshuipo, Kowloon.
His case was among four linked yesterday to the popular night spot in Central, prompting government officials to look more closely into a call to close down bars, restaurants and even gyms in the area.

More than 10 cases have been linked to Lan Kwai Fong in less than a week, including a young female journalist who caused two offices of the SCMP to be shut down after she was found infected on Mar 18.

She had traveled to the U.K. during the incubation period and had visited Lan Kwai Fong shortly before being taken ill.
