Health officials said on Tuesday that they had tested about 470 residents of buildings in an area of Sai Ying Pun after new ambush lockdowns, but no suspected Covid-19 cases were found.

The overnight testing operation covered Manifold Court on Pok Fu Lam Road; Truelight Building on Third Street; High Park 99 on High Street; Wing Cheung Building on Western Street; Golden Pheonix Court on St Stephen’s Lane; as well as blocks A and M of Hing Wah Mansion at Babington Path.

All residents were ordered to stay at home until the operation was complete.

Officials said the compulsory testing exercise ended at about 7.30am.

It was the third straight night of lockdowns in the area, with officials citing concerns that a cluster of infections linked to the Ursus gym may have spread to a multitude of residences.

More than a hundred people have been linked to the gym cluster so far.
