Block R was closed for inspection last night, and because the yellow rainstorm warning signal took effect, it was changed to door-to-door sampling for residents.
Zhao Enlai revealed that about 10 residents of 5 households of different levels were not photographed last night and have not been tested so far. He has already explained to the authorities.
Zhao Enlai quoted that some people on the scene explained that the residents might not answer the door at the time, did not rush and go home, but he was reported by the residents that if they did not answer the door, a notice would be posted outside the door to remind them, but the residents had repeatedly said that there was no notice.
Zhao Enlai criticized the authorities for making chaotic arrangements.
The confirmed 44-year-old Filipino domestic helper arrived in Hong Kong on March 31 and checked into the Dorsett Wanchai Hotel for quarantine. Later, he went to work at the employer's apartment in Block R of Allway Gardens.
She tested negative at the airport, on the 12th, 19th, and 26th days. As of May 2, because the government required the foreign domestic helper to undergo compulsory testing, she went to the community testing center to take samples and the test results were "uncertain", but the Department of Health's review was positive. However, the amount of virus is insufficient to make genetic sequencing.
The nasopharyngeal sample collected by her at Tuen Mun Hospital was still negative, and the sputum sample was positive with N501Y variant virus. The CT value exceeded 30, which means that the virus load was very low. The Centre for Health Protection temporarily classified her as a "probable local case".
