CHP follows up on COVID-19 confirmed cases at Kensington Plaza in Jordan
     The Centre for Health Protection (CHP) of the Department of Health (DH) today (January 22) said that as 10 confirmed cases of COVID-19 recently occurred at Kensington Plaza, 98 Parkes Street in Jordan, which involved five units including four C units of different floors, the CHP is proactively following up to investigate whether the infections of the cases are related, so as to stop the potential risk of further spread of the virus.

     The CHP has co-ordinated with related Government departments and conducted a site inspection this afternoon to the concerned floors and units of Kensington Plaza to investigate and examine if environmental factors were involved in the infection of the cases. The CHP took into account the opinions from experts and decided to carry out prudent measures on infection control before the relevant departments completed their inspection of the pipes of the building. The DH will issue quarantine orders to all asymptomatic residents of C units on all floors of Kensington Plaza (3rd Floor to 20th Floor) and transfer them to quarantine centres; symptomatic residents will be sent to the hospital for treatment.

     The CHP spokesman urged all individuals who are in doubt about their own health condition, or individuals with exposure to infection risk, to undergo testing promptly for early identification of infected persons.
