Fears of a new Covid-19 cluster linked to a hotpot restaurant have surfaced amid Hong Kong’s Omicron-fuelled fifth wave, while infections tied to an investment bank continued to expand, triggering the evacuation of residents in a building after vertical transmission of the virus was detected.⁠

Dr Chuang Shuk-kwan of the Centre for Health Protection said authorities were “concerned” about possible transmission in the Nabe Urawa restaurant as an earlier confirmed case, a 32-year-old woman, had also been there around the same time, separated by a row of tables from the student.⁠

“Transmission might have occurred in this restaurant, similar to what had happened in some other places,” Chuang said. “As we found in the previous waves of infections, hotpot could make transmission of viruses easier because of aerosol spread.”⁠

The first hotpot cluster emerged back in February 2020, with the virus spreading among a family who shared a meal, infecting about a dozen people.⁠
