  • Three blocks locked down for testing
Health officials on Wednesday locked down three public housing blocks in Kwun Tong, Cheung Sha Wan and Sheung Shui after sewage samples there tested positive for Covid-19.

Residents and recent visitors of Chi Tai House at On Tai Estate in Kwun Tong, Lai Tong House of Lai Tsui Court in Cheung Sha Wan and Tin Hee House of Tin Ping Estate in Sheung Shui must stay home and get tested.

“It is suspected that there are asymptomatic patients in the [buildings]. Given the risk of infection in the relevant area is assessed to be likely higher, the government decided to make a 'restriction-testing declaration' for the relevant area,” a government spokesperson said.

Officials expect to complete the operation by noon or in the afternoon on Thursday.
