Health authorities on Friday reported 17 new coronavirus infections, of which six were locally acquired.

Among the local cases, five are relatives of a couple who were confirmed to have the virus on Thursday.

Officials said the family had gathered over the Easter holiday.

All of them live in the private housing estate Meadowlands, in Hung Shui Kiu.

The remaining local case is a 39-year-old woman who lives in Oi Fai House in Yau Oi Estate, Tuen Mun, which was partially evacuated earlier after several cases were found there.

There were no untraceable infections.

The rest of the cases were imported, involving people arriving from Indonesia, the Philippines, Pakistan and India.
