  • Two confirmed cases found in latest lockdowns
Health officials said on Monday that they had tested more than a thousand residents of Central and Western after an overnight ambush-style Covid-19 lockdown and found two confirmed cases.

They said in a statement that the test result of one other specimen was still being verified.

The buildings in lock down were Kingsfield Tower, Fung Lam Building, Tung Ming Court, Lee Wai Building, Emerald House and Amber House on Pok Fu Lam Road in Sai Ying Pun; and Dynasty Court on Old Peak Road in Mid-levels.

A government spokesman said authorities knocked on the doors of around 410 units, and 80 of them did not answer, but added these units might include people who have already been sent to hospital or those being quarantined. The spokesman said authorities will follow up on it.

The compulsory testing ended at about 7am on Monday.
