Health authorities reported a new coronavirus outbreak on Friday, involving a restaurant on Des Voeux Road in Sheung Wan in which at least 30 of the more than 200 people who dined there on Saturday have been found infected.

Dr Chuang Shuk-kwan of the Centre for Health Protection said 29 diners who were at Sky Cuisine between  6pm and 11pm on Saturday, May 7, as well as one staff member, have tested positive for Covid.

The customers are aged between eight and 117 years old.


Chuang said a compulsory testing notice will be issued to all diners and about 50 staff members who were at the restaurant during the relevant times.

An investigation is also underway into how the virus had spread in the restaurant.

"We’re still interviewing the patients and their family contacts. So far, we understand most of them were sitting on the third floor of that restaurant. And we’re still ascertaining the distribution of the cases, the tables, and the seating. We understand there are more than 10 tables involved so far,” she said.
