Hong Kong’s Centre for Health Protection reported four new Covid-19 cases today, Aug 10, all of them imported and asymptomatic.

Three of the new patients received coronavirus vaccines in Hong Kong between March and April this year.

The fourth, a 31-year-old male flight attendant from Germany, was unvaccinated and tested positive for the L452R mutant strain on arrival in Hong Kong.


Of the three other cases, one of them, a 54-year-old man who arrived from France on Sunday, also carried the L452R strain.

He was vaccinated with the BioNTech vaccine on Mar 23 and Apr 13 in Hong Kong and tested positive for antibodies on Jul 2.

One other patient, a 60-year-old woman from Thailand, also tested positive on arrival. She received the Sinovac vaccine on Mar 3 and Apr 1 in Hong Kong.

The third is a 34-year-old man who flew in from the United States and tested positive while in hotel quarantine. He received the BioNTech vaccine on Mar 20 and Apr 12.


The CHP said there were fewer than five preliminary positive cases.

Today’s infections raised Hong Kong’s total confirmed infections to 12,019.

HKUST is the first school to restrict entry of unvaccinated people 

Meanwhile, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) has announced that it will bar anyone from entering the campus unless they are vaccinated or comply with the fortnightly testing requirements.


Students, staff and regular visitors are all covered by the regulation which will take effect starting Sept 1.

Staff and students will be required to upload their vaccination or testing record to an online system in order to receive an electronic ‘Campus Access Pass’.


Those who aren’t vaccinated will need to get tested every two weeks to renew their access pass. Vaccinated staff and students will get an entry pass that expires at the end of this year.

Anyone who fails to present a vaccination or testing record will be barred from entering campus or other university facilities with access controls, such as the library or sports facilities.

While students will not be dropped from the rolls if they do not comply with the requirement, the university said their studies will nevertheless be affected because they won’t be able to attend face-to-face classes or on-campus activities.
