A 24-year-old student in the United States who has just returned to Hong Kong tested positive today, May 27, for the coronavirus disease.

The new imported case brought the total tally in the city to 1,067. Today marked the 12th straight day that no new local case was reported.
The new case was reported in a press release from the Centre for Health Protection of the Department of Health, instead of the usual media briefing.

According to the CHP release, the student developed a runny nose on Apr 10, but had since recovered.
He flew into Hong Kong yesterday, and left a saliva sample at the Asia-World Expo testing center. He then proceeded to the Regal Oriental Hotel in Kowloon for isolation pending the release of the result.

After his test result showed he had the coronavirus, the student was transferred to Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Yaumatei for treatment.
As of today, only 28 confirmed patients are still confined in seven various hospitals, one of whom is in critical condition. The rest are all stable.
