CHP says 6 of the 11 new imported Covid-19 cases carried the mutated virus

Eleven of the 13 new Covid-19 cases reported today are imported, and six of them have the highly contagious coronavirus variant, according to staff at the Centre for Health Protection.


Those found with the N501Y variant, said to be 70 times more infectious than the regular strain, include three Filipina domestic workers, two returning residents from Pakistan, and another from Nepal.


The five others who did not carry the mutated virus were all FDWs from Indonesia.

Two local cases, both with no known source, were also confirmed today. One is a 23-year-old renovation worker who lives in Yau Tong, and the other is a 56-year-old waitress who lives in North Point. Both tested preliminary positive yesterday.
