CHP follows up on COVID-19 confirmed cases at Block R, Luk Yeung Sun Chuen in Tsuen Wan
     The Centre for Health Protection (CHP) of the Department of Health (DH) today (February 1) said that as 12 confirmed cases of COVID-19 recently occurred at seven units in Block R, Luk Yeung Sun Chuen in Tsuen Wan, the CHP is following up to investigate whether the infections of the cases are related, so as to stop the potential risk of the further spread of the virus.

     As confirmed cases were found in four units on the 18th Floor of Block R, the CHP has listed all units on that floor as close contacts and transferred them to quarantine centres. In investigating yesterday's preliminary positive cases, the CHP further identified that the 04 units at three different floors of Block R were affected. Hence, the CHP carried out further follow-up actions.

     The CHP co-ordinated with related government departments and conducted a site inspection this morning to the floors and units concerned of Block R, Luk Yeung Sun Chuen, to investigate and examine if environmental factors were involved in the infection of the cases. The CHP took into account opinions from experts and decided to carry out further measures on infection control. The DH will issue quarantine orders to all asymptomatic residents of 04 and 05 units above 18th Floor of Block R, Luk Yeung Sun Chuen (19th Floor to 30th Floor), and transfer them to quarantine centres, and symptomatic residents will be sent to the hospital for treatment.

     Moreover, as a family cluster at a unit of Block D is epidemiologically linked with a unit on 18th Floor of Block R, Block D of Luk Yeung Sun Chuen will be included in the compulsory testing notice today. 

     For the well-being of members of the public and public health safety, the Government appeals for the co-operation of all related residents to participate in the testing and stay home until the results of the tests are available, so as to prevent the risk of spreading the virus in the community.

     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.
