The government has ended its lockdown of a residential building in Sai Wan Ho, with no new cases of Covid-19 being being found. Around 830 people were tested.

Compulsory testing was ordered after a resident, who had been exempted from hotel quarantine, tested preliminary positive for the disease on Thursday.

The resident, who is 55, works for the Russian consulate and had been allowed to serve his quarantine at his home in Tower 1 of Grand Promenade, after returning from Russia via Finland on October 5.

He had tested positive for the L452R mutant strain, which is found in – but not confined to – the highly infectious delta variant.
