2 imported COVID-19 cases identified

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating two additional imported COVID-19 cases, both involving the L452R mutant strain.   One of the patients, a 31-year-old woman, arrived in Hong Kong from Maldives via Doha. She is a close contact of a previous imported case and tested positive at a public hospital where she accompanied that patient.   Another patient, a 43-year-old female foreign domestic helper, arrived from the Philippines and tested positive during quarantine.   A total of 60 cases were reported in Hong Kong in the past 14 days, one of which is a local case with an unknown infection source and the rest are imported.   For information and health advice on COVID-19, visit the Government's dedicated webpage.
