Times of Suriname - - PANORAMA -

HONG KONG ­ Hong Kong’s Cen­ter for He­alth Pro­tec­ti­on (CHP) on Sun­day re­por­ted 10 ad­di­ti­o­nal con­fir­med ca­ses of CO­VID­19, in­clu­ding two lo­cal ca­ses and eight im­por­ted ca­ses. The ad­di­ti­o­nal ca­ses brought the to­tal num­ber of con­fir­med CO­VID­19 ca­ses in Hong Kong to 1,268. This is the first ti­me sin­ce Ju­ne 13 that lo­cal ca­ses are re­por­ted in

Hong Kong.

The two ca­ses in­vol­ve a 59­year­old ma­le res­tau­rant wor­ker and a 41­year­old fe­ma­le nur­se, head of the CHP’s Com­mu­ni­ca­ble Di­sea­se Branch, said at a me­dia brie­fing on Sun­day af­ter­noon. The ma­le pa­tient wor­ked in two res­tau­rants and had no tra­vel his­to­ry du­ring the in­cu­ba­ti­on pe­ri­od. The nur­se wor­ked in a pri­va­te cli­nic du­ring the in­cu­ba­ti­on pe­ri­od but had no di­rect con­tact with pa­tients. The CHP has ar­ran­ged qua­ran­ti­ne for staff of the cli­nic. The CHP again ur­ged mem­bers of the pu­blic to main­tain an ap­prop­ri­a­te so­ci­al dis­tan­ce and avoid so­ci­al ac­ti­vi­ties such as me­al ga­therings, so as to mi­ni­mi­ze the risk of in­fec­ti­on and clus­ter out­breaks in the com­mu­ni­ty.
