The Centre for Health Protection said on June 7 that a woman with travel history from the Philippines tested positive for the novel coronavirus diseases (COVID-19).

The 25-year-old woman arrived in Hong Kong on June 6. She was asymptomatic and had no underlying illnesses. She is now confined at the Princess Margaret Hospital.

This newest imported case takes the tally of COVID-19 cases in Hong Kong to 1,107.

The case came days after the Philippine Consulate General reported that the last Filipino who remained within confinement for COVID-19 infection has been finally discharged on June 4. Over 20 Filipinos have been afflicted with the disease, some of whom are domestic workers, while some are musicians and personnel of bars which belonged to the bar-and-band cluster in March.
