The Tai Koo block where the siblings resided was locked down on Jul 19 

The 17-year-old daughter of a Saudi Arabian diplomat in Hong Kong has tested positive for Covid-19 and the mutant strain, L452R, on her 7th day test in a quarantine center.

She is the sister of a 13-year-old girl and an 11-year-old boy, who were both found infected four days after they all arrived on Jul 16 aboard flight QR 818 from Saudi Arabia.


The younger girl was listed as being in critical condition a few days later, but is now said to have improved slightly to “serious.”

The siblings’ arrival tests at the airport all showed they did not carry the virus. But the result turned positive for the two younger kids on their third day tests while they were supposedly undergoing home quarantine.

She showed symptoms on Jul 17, but still went to several places with her brother, including the Peak Galleria, Citygate mall and the Ngong Ping cable car ride while they were meant to be isolating in their house at Tang Kung Mansion in Tai Koo Shing, Quarry Bay.

Later, it was found out the girl had also been to two shops in the Tai Koo Shing mall.


As immediate family members of an official from a foreign country, they were exempted from hotel quarantine but were meant to observe strict protocol, like being fetched by a private vehicle from the airport, and driven directly to the place where they were supposed to isolate.

The elder sister, their father, their driver and domestic worker, were all moved to a government quarantine centre on Jul 20, after the children’s infections were detected.

The elder daughter started having symptoms of Covid-19 yesterday, when her test result also showed she had been infected.

She took the number of cases in Hong Kong today to 11,980.
