CHP follows up on COVID-19 confirmed cases and preliminary positive cases at Mr. Ming's Chinese Dining
     The Centre for Health Protection (CHP) of the Department of Health today (February 25) said that as six confirmed cases and five preliminary positive cases of COVID-19 recently occurred at Mr. Ming's Chinese Dining located at Shop 113A, 1/F, K11 Musea, Victoria Dockside, 18 Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, the CHP is proactively following up to investigate whether the infections of the cases are related, so as to stop the potential risk of a further spread of the virus.   

     The CHP spokesman said that amongst the 11 confirmed cases and preliminary positive cases, eight of them involve those who had lunch at Mr. Ming's Chinese Dining on February 18 and 19, and the remaining three cases involve staff of that restaurant. 

     According to the CHP's initial epidemiological investigation, amongst those patients who had lunch at Mr. Ming's Chinese Dining, seven of them visited the restaurant on February 19. As some of them do not know each other, it is believed that the restaurant may have been the place where transmissions occurred. In order to stop the potential risk of further spread of the virus, the CHP appeals to those who visited Mr. Ming's Chinese Dining from noon to 3pm on February 19 to call the CHP's hotlines at 2125 1111 or 2125 1122 as soon as possible to facilitate the CHP's epidemiological investigations and contact tracing. 

     The Government yesterday (February 24) has exercised power under the Prevention and Control of Disease (Compulsory Testing for Certain Persons) Regulation (Cap. 599J) to require any person who had been present at Mr. Ming's Chinese Dining at any time during the period from February 18 to February 24, 2021 (including but not limited to visitors and workers), have to undergo testing by February 26, 2021. If persons subject to compulsory testing previously underwent testing on February 24, 2021, they would be taken to have complied with the requirements set out in the compulsory testing notice.

     The spokesman urged relevant individuals to undergo testing promptly for early identification of infected persons.
