Authorities on Sunday evening locked down five residential blocks in Sha Tin and Tuen Mun, after sewage samples from the buildings tested positive for Covid.

Residents of Mei Sau House, Mei King House and Mei Chi House at Mei Tin Estate in Sha Tin, as well as those living in Leung Kit House and Leung Wai House at Leung King Estate in Tuen Mun needed to get tested overnight and stay in their flats.

A government spokesperson said there might be asymptomatic patients in the buildings, and the risk of infection in the areas was likely higher.

The administration said it aims to complete the operations in Sha Tin at around 10am on Monday, and those in Tuen Mun at around noon the same day.
