CHP follows up on COVID-19 confirmed cases and preliminary positive case at Block 5, Laguna City in Cha Kwo Ling
     The Centre for Health Protection (CHP) of the Department of Health (DH) today (January 25) said that as five confirmed cases and one preliminary positive case of COVID-19 recently occurred at Block 5, Laguna City in Cha Kwo Ling, involving units E at three 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 morning to the concerned floors and units of Block 5, Laguna City 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 completion of inspection of the pipes of the building. The DH will issue quarantine orders to all asymptomatic residents of units E and those units combining with units E on all floors of Block 5, Laguna City (1st Floor to 27th 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.
