Hong Kong health authorities reported 12 new Covid-19 cases on Saturday—two imported and 10 local—pushing the city’s coronavirus caseload to 10,767.

Among the two imported cases is a 29-year-old domestic worker from the Philippines who arrived on Jan. 30. She tested positive for the virus on her 12th day under quarantine in To Kwa Wan.

The other imported case—a 67-year-old man from the United Arab Emirates—also arrived on the same day and stayed in Wan Chai where he tested positive on the 12th day.

Of the 10 local cases, two were untraceable: a social welfare worker who lived in Wong Tai Sin and worked in Tsz Wan Shan, and a male security guard who did duty in Bowrington Road Market and the West Kowloon Station of the Hong Kong Express rail link.
