Hong Kong authorities confirmed 140 new coronavirus infections on Sunday, the most in a single day in 18 months, as they battled to contain a spiralling outbreak at the Omicron-hit Kwai Chung Estate.
Of the infections confirmed on Sunday, 125 were locally transmitted, including 17 outside the estate and four with unknown sources. The other 15 were imported.
The estate outbreak, including preliminary-positive infections, has now hit 173 cases.
Officials had detected 126 and 41 infections, respectively, at the estate’s Yat Kwai House and Ying Kwai House by 12pm on Sunday, according to Secretary for Food and Health Sophia Chan Siu-chee, who said five-day lockdowns at each building would continue as scheduled.
Nga Kwai House, with two infections, and Hiu Kwai, Yuk Kwai and Chin Kwai houses, which had one case each, were judged to be of “lower risk”, so their overnight lockdowns had ended, Chan said. Neighbouring Chun Kwai House also had one case.
