14 September 2021

By The SUN 

There are now 6 FDHs from the Sept 1 Cebu Pacific flight who have tested positive for Covid-19

A Filipina domestic helper who arrived from Manila on Sept 1 via Cebu Pacific flight 5J272 is one of two new Covid-19 cases confirmed today, Sept. 14.

The 53-year-old Filipina, who is asymptomatic, is the sixth domestic worker from that flight to test positive for coronavirus.

Three were found infected with a mutated form of the virus on their arrival at HK Airport, prompting the government to impose a two-week ban on the flight starting Sept 3. Two others were reported as confirmed cases on Sept. 5.

Today’s patient was on her 12th day of quarantine at Ramada Hong Kong Grand hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui when she was found infected. Her variant test result is still pending.

She had two shots of the BioNTech vaccine in Hong Kong on Apr 10 and May 1 before leaving for the Philippines.

The other patient is a 49-year-old man who arrived on Sept 10 from Doha via Qatar Airways. He was on his third day of quarantine at Metropark Hotel in Ho Man Tin when found infected.

The man received two doses of Sinovac in Hong Kong on Mar 18 and Apr 15.

The two cases took Hong Kong’s total Covid-19 tally to 12,149 after five cases compatible with laboratory contamination were deleted from the official list on Sept 1.

Meanwhile, Hong Kong will now allow people holding non-local coronavirus vaccination records to register these certificates with the government to make it easy for them to carry the records on their phones and use these in their daily activities.

All new arrivals with non-HK vaccination records will now be given a QR code for local use

The Food and Health Bureau announced the new arrangement today, Sept 14, as it noted that there are many inbound travelers from other countries who come to Hong Kong for various purposes.

The new arrangement will allow these persons to carry and view the records in electronic format when needed, such as when they enter premises that require proof of vaccination.

As part of the new arrangement, any inbound traveler who is subject to compulsory quarantine has to declare his non-local Covid-19 vaccination record while filling the “Health & Quarantine Information Declaration” via the Department of Health’s online platform (www.chp.gov.hk/hdf/).

From tomorrow, Sept. 15, travelers not vaccinated in HK will be issued a compulsory quarantine order together with a vaccination record QR code for local use at the tame time. The same arrangement will be made for those arriving via land borders from Sept 18 onwards.

Those who are already in Hong Kong can declare their non-local vaccination records through the “Covid-19 Vaccination Information Declaration (www.chp.gov.hk/vac-df/) from Sept 15 to get a QR code immediately for local use.

Those who can’t make the declaration online can do so at designated counters of Hongkong Post. They will need to complete the declaration form and present original copies of their identity document and non-local vaccination record.

Children aged under 18 or persons with a disability can authorize a person to register on their behalf.

For convenience, holders of a QR code of vaccination record for local use can scan and save the code with the “LeaveHomeSafe” mobile app. They may also continue to present paper vaccination records to fulfill the relevant requirement under the vaccine bubble.
