  • Five blocks locked down for Covid tests
Officials sealed off four buildings in Kwong Fuk Estate in Tai Po, as well as another block in Wong Tai Sin for Covid testing on Friday, while four earlier lockdowns ended with 167 infections found.

The government said it made the restriction testing declarations for Kwong Chi House, Kwong Wai House, Kwong Lai House and Kwong Shung House after sewage samples from the buildings came back positive for the coronavirus.

Cheung Tung House of Tung Tau (II) Estate in Wong Tai Sin was also sealed off for testing, again because Covid had been found in sewage samples from the block.

Meanwhile, authorities tested more than 2,200 people in Lei Chak House of Ap Lei Chau Estate in Aberdeen and uncovered 85 Covid-positive cases.

There were also 32 indeterminate test results.

About 680 people from Tsui Yue House of Tsui Ping (North) Estate in Kwun Tong were tested and 43 of them were found to be carrying the coronavirus.

Another 32 infected people were identified in Kwai Shue House of Lei Muk Shue (II) Estate in Tsuen Wan after the testing of more than 800 residents.

In Sham Shui Po, seven cases were found following the testing of about 500 people in Cheong Chung House of Nam Cheong Estate.
