At least 10 foreign domestic workers were forced to sleep on the streets or denied treatment after testing positive for the coronavirus amid a surge in infections in Hong Kong, several migrant workers rights groups warned on Friday.⁠

Charities and rights groups have sounded alarm bells after several domestic workers were abandoned when they tested positive, with a lack of government assistance forcing NGOs to step in to help.⁠

Anna*, 35, was left to sleep at a park in Yau Ma Tei for two nights after receiving an SMS message confirming she had contracted the coronavirus on February 15. She was due to fly back to the Philippines on February 16 following a visa denial.⁠

“I felt cold, I was shaking,” Anna said, referring to her nights of sleeping rough.⁠
