Hong Kong on Monday reported at least three more Covid-related deaths, raising the city's tally to 55.

An 85-year-old male patient passed away at Eastern Hospital during the small hours.

The Shau Kei Wan resident had been admitted late last month due to fever and diarrhoea.

Another elderly patient, an 86-year-old man, died at Queen Mary Hospital.

The man had lived at Cornwall Elderly's Home in Tuen Mun, where dozens of residents and staff have come down with the virus.

He had suffered from chronic illnesses and was taken to hospital on July 28 due to fever and vomiting.

And a 94-year-old Tuen Mun resident passed away at Prince of Wales Hospital. He too had been admitted at the end of last month with a fever.
