  • Covid clusters continue to grow
Covid infection clusters in Hong Kong continued to grow on Monday, as the city recorded a slight decrease in the daily caseload.

The Centre for Health Protection said two people who went to a private kitchen in Kwun Tong for a business meeting have come down with the virus.

The centre's Albert Au said there are now 11 infections among visitors of the venue.

"Some of them might have taken off their masks but they all denied that they went there to eat," he said.

"There are several tables at the premises and there is also a kitchen. There's a room for karaoke or mahjong. We have obtained some environmental samples, so far they are all negative."

Au said the centre had obtained a partial list of some 40 people who went to the private kitchen in Shing Yip Industrial Building on May 9, and they had been told to get tested.

Meanwhile, four more diners of the Sky Cuisine restaurant in Sheung Wan have been confirmed to have Covid-19, meaning a total of 56 staff members or customers have been infected.

Au said three more samples, including one taken from a dish cabinet in the restaurant, have tested positive for the virus.

Another customer of the Sun Mong snooker club in Hung Hom has also come down with Covid.

In total, there were 234 new infections for the day – 42 of them imported. There were no new Covid-related deaths.
