  • San Po Kong lockdown lifted, no new cases found
The government on Wednesday morning lifted the ambush-style lockdown in San Po Kong, brought in on Tuesday evening after a Covid-19 case turned up in a building where there are a lot of subdivided flats. Over 500 people were tested and no new cases were found.

Residents of Cambridge Building on 6-24A Kam Wing Street, where the case was discovered, as well as Tong Seng Mansion on 1-33 Kam Wing Street and 5-7 Yin Hing Street were required to stay in their flats and undergo compulsory Covid-19 tests.

It was the first lockdown of the Year of the Ox.

The government had temporarily suspended their snap lockdown and test strategy just ahead of the Lunar New Year holidays, though it advised people against visiting family over the festive period.
