523 COVID-19 cases recorded

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating 523 additional COVID-19 cases, of which 252 were detected by nucleic acid tests and 271 were identified via rapid antigen tests.   Among the new cases, 13 are imported while the rest are locally infected.   A total of 1,188,800 people have contracted the virus since the onset of the fifth wave of the epidemic, involving 9,023 deaths.   Meanwhile, the Government made a restriction-testing declaration to cover Blocks 2 and 3 of Bel Air Heights in Diamond Hill, requiring people in the restricted area to undergo compulsory testing before the specified deadline.   Given that there were positive sewage test results with relatively high viral loads in several areas of Tuen Mun, the respective district offices will distribute COVID-19 rapid test kits to relevant residents as well as cleaning workers and property management staff working in those areas.   For information and health advice on COVID-19, visit the Government's dedicated webpage.
