A woodwind member of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra reportedly tested positive for Covid-19 today, Oct 13.

The Art Venue Performing Arts Magazine, citing inside sources, said the member last performed in HK Phil’s concert last Friday. All 100 members of HK Phil will reportedly be taken to a quarantine centre as a result. 

Another unconfirmed report identified the member as Lorenzo Antonio Iosco, the orchestra's principal clarinet player who performed last Friday and Saturday (Oct 9 and 10) at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre in Tsim Sha Tsui. Chief Executive Carrie Lam was reportedly in the audience last Friday.

The second report said the 100 other members of the orchestra will be required to stay at the Chuk Tsui Bay Quarantine Centre.

A Department of Health information officer confirmed on inquiry that a member of the HK Phil tested preliminary positive today. He said an epidemiological investigation is underway so no other information is available.

He also could not immediately confirm that all 100 members of the orchestra will be placed under quarantine.

The Centre for Health Protection did confirm, however, that there were eight confirmed Covid-19 cases as of midnight last night.

The new cases brought Hong Kong’s total number of confirmed infections to 5,201, with 105 related deaths. (Details here:

The other imported cases were two returnees - one from India and another from France - and a cargo crew from Germany.

The other four cases were locally acquired, two of them with unknown source. One, a 68-year-old man, consulted a private doctor after developing a fever on Oct 5. Three days later he sought medical treatment at the Tseung Kwan O Hospital where he tested positive.

A 32-year-old male family member who lives with him in Tseung Kwan O is also among the newly reported cases announced today.

The other untraceable case was that of a 48-year-old man who developed fever on Oct 10 and went for a medical check-up at United Christian Hospital where he was tested for the coronavirus. He works at Cityplaza One and last went to work on Oct 9.

The only case linked to a previous case is a 33-year-old man who lives in Tsuen Wan.

CHP did not hold its usual press briefing today because storm signal no 8 remained hoisted throughout the day amid the strong winds and rain brought on by typhoon Nangka as it made its way toward Hainan island.
