The Centre for Health Protection reported that an Indonesian domestic worker was among the two cases acquired from outside Hong Kong.

CHP’s Dr. Albert Au said the helper, 34, tested positive for the virus on the 12th day sample while under quarantine in a hotel in Sai Ying Pun.

The other imported case is 26-year-old cabin crew member who entered Hong Kong from Turkey.

Of the 10 recorded cases, seven were linked to previous infections while three had no traceable origin of infection to date.

Three local Covid-19 infections are linked to Mirador Mansion in Tsim Sha Tsui. They came to Hong Kong from mainland China from July 2020 to Oct. 2020.

One untraceable case reported today is a 35-year-old hairstylist who works in RTHK. More than 20 of his close contacts will be quarantined.
