The Indonesian DH tested positive at Ramada Sai Ying Pun on her 19th day sample

Only one confirmed case of Covid-19 was reported today, May 20, involving an Indonesian domestic helper with no symptoms who tested positive on her 19th day in hotel quarantine.

According to staff at the Centre for Health Protection, the 26-year-old Indonesian woman arrived in Hong Kong on Apr 19, and was found infected just two days before she was set to be released from quarantine at Ramada Harbour View Hotel in Sai Ying Pung.


She took Hong Kong’s total Covid-19 tally to 11,829.

In the past 14 days, a total of 31 cases were recorded in Hong Kong, including five local cases of which one is of unknown source.

That sole untraceable case is a 4-year-old boy whose case has baffled experts because he tested negative when taken to hospital on Saturday, after being confirmed as infected in two earlier tests.

He is set to be tested for the presence of antibodies, and if the result again turns out negative, he will be taken off the official tally. That will make Hong Kong free of any local unlinked case for the past 27 days.

However, the CHP staff said that as of today, the boy is still listed as a confirmed case.

In its press release, CHP said it was investigating an overseas case of an 18-year-old woman who left Hong Kong for Shenzhen on May 5 and was yesterday confirmed as Covid-19 positive. Hong Kong was notified about the case by the Guangdong health authority.


The woman lived in Block 1, The Belcher’s at 89 Pokfulam Road. CHP said it will put the building under a compulsory testing order tonight, and is now conducting epidemiological investigations and contact tracing.

This is the second day in a row that someone was found positive on the mainland shortly after leaving Hong Kong. Yesterday, a 43-year-old man who had quarantined in Hong Kong for 21 days after flying in from Italy was found infected when he arrived in Shanghai on May 16.

The patient declared on arrival in Hong Kong on Apr 22 that he tested positive for Covid-19 in Italy in late February. After being released from quarantine on May 12, he stayed for three days at the Harbour Plaza Resort City, then flew on to Shanghai where he tested positive.

CHP said its investigation into the two cases, both classified as imported, is continuing.

Despite the marked drop in the number of infections, health authorities are still urging residents to avoid going out, having social contact and dining out. They should continue wearing a  surgical mask and maintain stringent hand hygiene when they need to go out.
