In its report today, the CHP also reported that six new confirmed cases were linked to the Filipino musician in Lan Kwai Fong who was confirmed to have the disease late on Mar 22. Five of them are musicians in the same band, and one is a waitress in the pub where they played.

At the press conference, health officials reportedly said the musicians were all black, and had shared instruments. They reportedly played in Insomnia bar in Central and Centre Stage and Dusk Til Dawn in Wanchai.

However, other reports said the five are all Filipinos belonging to the same band as the first confirmed musician.

Consul General Raly Tejada says he has been informed of only one Filipino case today, the one involving the newly arrived domestic worker.
