The fourth wave of the new crown pneumonia epidemic in Hong Kong continues. The Centre for Health Protection of the Department of Health announced today (22nd) that there were 61 new confirmed cases and 55 local cases.
The Director of the Department of Infectious Diseases of the Centre for Health Protection of the Department of Health, Cheung Chuk-kun, said that 4 new buildings were listed as compulsory testing buildings today, including Tseung Kwan O Tower 3, The Grandiose Gardens, 3 Yen Yee Gardens, Yuen Long Hi Lee Building, and Chai Wan Yue Chui Court .
As for the designated mandatory inspection areas in Yau Ma Tei and Sham Shui Po, two buildings have been added, including 35 Battery Street, 65-70 Battery Street, 260 Tai Nan Street, and 95 Guilin Street.
Zhang Zhujun pointed out that the patient may have excrement discharged into the sewer. When the sewage test result of the building is positive, or because the invisible patient has not been tested, "the sewer is positive, it does not mean that there is a problem with the pipe of the building."

The two units are in the same direction but on different floors. , 2 and 1 were diagnosed.
In addition, another three buildings have two units with one person diagnosed. They are also located on the same floor but are not familiar with each other, including Block 3, Yan Yee Garden in Tseung Kwan O, Hi Lee Building in Yuen Long, and Yue Chui Court in Chai Wan.

In addition, Sham Shui Po designated the scope of compulsory testing, and two buildings were also included in the compulsory testing. Similarly, one unit was diagnosed with one person, including No. 260 Da Nan Street and No. 95 Guilin Street.
As for the area designated for mandatory testing in Yau Ma Tei, two new buildings have also been included in the mandatory testing. Similarly, one unit has one person diagnosed in each unit, including 35 Battery Street and 65 to 70 Battery Street.
Zhang Zhujun continued to point out that many of the cases on Pitt Street in Yau Ma Tei belonged to subdivided households. One person was diagnosed today. The situation is currently being reviewed. The cause of the spread is suspected to be subdivided houses. Because it is sometimes difficult to identify whether the unit is subdivided, the authorities will assign staff. "Scan again" and arrange for residents of the same sub-divided room to be sent to the quarantine center.

Asked whether the sewage sample from Yau Tsim Mong District was positive, should the residents evacuate.
Zhang Zhujun responded, assuming that there is a confirmed case where he lives, and the patient's excrement may be discharged into the sewer.
If the University of Hong Kong and relevant departments test samples and find that the sewage is positive, but there is no confirmed case in the building, it may be that there are invisible patients who have not been tested.
"If the sewage drain is positive, it doesn't mean that there is a problem with the pipes of the building. It is a different matter."
