CHP reported 7 new Covid-19 cases

Seven coronavirus infections were reported today, Mar 30, and all except one were imported. The only local case, a 44-year-old woman, is linked to a previous infection.

Three of the six imported cases were also found to have the highly infectious N501Y variant. They comprise two female domestic helpers – one Filipina and the other, Indonesian – as well as a seafarer from Ukraine.



The Filipina, 41, arrived in Hong Kong on a Cebu Pacific flight on Mar 28, the Centre for Health Protection said. She was asymptomatic, but test results of her sample taken at the airport showed she was positive.

The Indonesian, 35, flew in on a Garuda flight on the same day, while the 22-year-old Ukrainian arrived on Saturday with a fellow seafarer, 21, on a KLM flight from Amsterdam via Bangkok.

The other imported cases were a 39-year-old male air crew of Turkish Airlines who arrived Sunday from Istanbul and a man aged 59 who flew in from Pakistan on Saturday.

Today’s seven new patients took Hong Kong’s Covid-19 tally to 11,462.


The CHP said 143 cases were recorded in the past 14 days to Mar 29, including 71 local cases of which 19 were from unknown sources.
The Hospital Authority said that as of 9am today, 134 confirmed patients are being treated in 22 public hospitals and the treatment center at North Lantau Hospital.



Of these, nine patients are critical, three are serious and the remaining 122 are in stable condition.

Dr Chan says it's too soon to further relax infection control measures 

Meanwhile, Health Secretary Sophia Chan said Hong Kong can’t just yet relax its infection control measures drastically despite a decline in new infections because the government does not want everyone’s efforts in fighting the virus to go to naught.

Speaking on an RTHK program, Chan said, “If we allow everything to return to normal, a hundred percent, there will certainly be risks.”

She spoke a day after the government announced religious gatherings will resume tomorrow; while beaches, swimming pools, museums and libraries will reopen Thursday.

Cinemas and performance venues will also be allowed to fill up to 75% of their capacity, from the previous 50%.

However, venues considered as high risk, like bars, karaoke parlors and party rooms will remain closed, at least for two more weeks.

Chan said the government would look at the overall virus situation and the risks of further relaxation before deciding whether to reopen them.

“We understand that it’s not that some industry has not been working hard enough in the past. I understand that industries are doing their best hoping to resume their businesses. This is something the government has to consider as a whole,” Chan said.

People should get their vaccine shots as soon as possible, as inoculation could help fight the pandemic and allow life to return to normal, she said.
