The Filipina and the two Indian returnees all arrived on Sept 30 and tested positive at Hong Kong airport.

The 33-year-old Filipina flew in via Philippine Airlines flight PR300. She was fully vaccinated with Sinovac in the Philippines, and carried the L452R mutant strain.

The Indian returnees included a 71-year-old man and 62-year-old woman who both flew in via via UK6401. The man tested positive for the N501Y mutant strain, while the woman carried the L452R strain. Both received two jabs of Covishield vaccine in India.


The passengers from Germany and France tested positive while in quarantine. They both tested positive for the L452R mutant strain.

The 41-year-old man who came from Germany flew in on Sept 28 via TK083, and was quarantined at Ramada Harbour View Hotel in Sai Ying Pun. He had two shots of the Sinovac vaccine in Hong Kong and also tested positive for antibodies.

The man from France is 29 years old and also arrived on Sept 28, but via CX260. He got vaccinated with BioNTech in France, and was in quarantine at Best Western Hotel in Sai Ying Pun when he was confirmed to have Covid-19.

The senior citizens attended a health talk on Covid-19 vaccines and were invited to get their first shot of the Sinovac vaccine

On hand to encourage them to get vaccinated was Secretary for the Civil Service, Patrick Nip.

"Whether you are in your 70s, 80s, or even much senior, it is urgent that you protect yourself through learning about Covid-19 vaccines and get vaccinated,” Nip told them.


He said that the mobile service covering a health talk, medical consultation and on-site vaccination has been provided in various districts.

“The vaccinations were smooth and safe and some of the vaccine recipients were in their 90s. On the contrary, under the threat posed by mutant strains, elderly who are not vaccinated will be subject to the extremely high risk of getting seriously ill and death from Covid-19.”

An elderly man bravely takes the jab and is applauded by Nip and other officials

Experts have recommended that elderly persons should get vaccinated as soon as possible if they are not suffering from acute illnesses. They say the Covid-19 vaccines are as safe as those for the flu, which many elderly people regularly receive.

All eligible persons who want to receive a Covid-19 vaccination can go to any Community Vaccination Centres (CVCs) to collect same-day tickets. They can get vaccinated right away as long as there are quotas available at the CVC they go to.

Meanwhile, patients and visitors may also apply to receive the BioNTech vaccine without prior booking at the Covid-19 vaccination stations in Queen Mary Hospital, Queen Elizabeth Hospital and Tuen Mun Hospital.

But people may still make reservations for their preferred date and time for vaccination through, or go to any private doctor or clinic under the government’s vaccination program to get jabbed with Sinovac.
