Dr Chuang Shuk-kwan from the Centre for Health Protection said that of the 36 local cases, 23 were linked to previous infections while 13 had unknown sources.

Despite the distinct drop in the number of new cases, Dr Chuang said people should not let their guards down, especially with more long weekends ahead.

“We are having quite a number of long weekends with quite some gatherings. As we mentioned, a lot of people crowded together outside, or inside at home, so we are quite worried about whether numbers will go up again,” she said.

All it would take is one super spreader to get the numbers up again, she said.  “We hope that the worst is over, but still the numbers may rebound any time.”
