Authorities on Monday said four more imported cases of coronavirus have been reported, bringing the total number of confirmed cases in the city to 1,203.

The Centre for Health Protection said the latest cases comprise three females and one male aged 23 to 53.

All three women are domestic helpers who arrived in Hong Kong from the Philippines on Sunday, while the male is a student who returned to Hong Kong from the UK two weeks ago and was under compulsory home quarantine when he tested positive.

Two of the patients reported a cough, while the other two were asymptomatic.

The three domestic helpers were transferred to United Christian Hospital from Asia World-Expo, while the male was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital from his home in Tsim Sha Tsui.

Meanwhile, the Hospital Authority said that as of noon on Monday, a total of 92 Covid-19 patients are currently in hospital, of which one is in a critical condition and the rest are in a stable condition.
