The 18 local cases were equally divided into those that were linked to previous cases, and those that were untraceable. They all brought Hong Kong’s total infection tally to 10,756 cases.

Around 10 preliminary cases were detected, in a further sign of a decline in the number of cases.

Secretary for Health Dr Sophia Chan said the social distancing restrictions will be relaxed as announced if (1) there is no significant change in the epidemic situation and (2) there is no large outbreak or cluster of cases.

In addition, she said catering businesses will be required to improve the ventilation in their premises. Staff will also be tested for Covid-19 every two weeks, with the first three months of tests to be administered free by the government. 

Dr Chan assures the public the Leave Home Safe app will not store their personal info

Chan also appealed to the public to use the LeaveHomeSafe app, especially when dining in restaurants, for more efficient contact tracing in case infections are detected within the premises.

“We have been hearing comments that it’s difficult to order customers to use it. We urge the restaurants and premises owners to abide by the regulation and we hope customers will follow suit,” she said.


She said the app will not be used for purposes other than contact tracing, assuring people that “all the information will be left in your mobile phones.”

Dr Lau Ka-hin of the Hospital Authority reported one more confirmed patient succumbing to the disease, raising the death toll in public hospitals to 186. The 85-year-old male patient passed away at 6:08am today in Yan Chai Hospital.

There are a total of 373 confirmed patients still being treated in 23 public hospitals and the treatment facility at AsiaWorld Expo. Among them, 32 are in critical condition, 17 are seriously ill and 324 are stable.

Meanwhile, Dr Chuang Shuk-kwan from the Centre for Health Protection said the nine patients with unknown sources live in Mirador Mansion in Tsim Sha Tsui, Fung Fat Heung in Pat Heung, Kam Lam House in Ma On Shan, Far East Consortium Building in Yuen Long, Mei Ying Building in Shek Kip Mei, Moonbeam Terrace in Beacon Hill, Whampoa Garden in Hung Hom, Kwong Chi House in Tai Po and Sam Mun Tsai in Tai Po.

All residents in these buildings (except the ones in Pat Heung and Sam Mun Tsai which are standalone houses) will undergo compulsory testing, as well as in three other designated residences: Century Link in Tung Chung, Provident Villas in Sandy Bay, Pokfulam and Le Billionaire in Kowloon City.
