The new crown pneumonia epidemic in Hong Kong continues and a variant virus has invaded the community.

The government announced last night (6th) that Fengxing Building, Xinghua Second Village, Chaiwan, was listed as a "restricted area" and residents must undergo mandatory testing.

The original goal of the authorities was to complete the operation at 7 o'clock this morning.

However, as of 1 pm today (7th), the government authorities have not yet unblocked the site, and residents have not been able to leave.

This morning, the Hong Kong government arranged for more boxes of materials to be transported into the building.

If the government has always been involved in cases of variant virus strains infecting buildings in the past, after compulsory testing is completed, the residents of the entire building will be arranged to evacuate.

The Chairman of the Eastern District Council, Li Zhiqiang, revealed that since some residents could not be found last night, there were still inspection agents this morning to arrange inspections for residents.

He also estimated that there is a good chance that residents have to be sent to a quarantine center for isolation.

The government's original goal to complete the action at 7 am this morning

The Centre for Health Protection announced last night (6th) that due to the latest discovery of the Indian man infected with the variant virus and his girlfriend, they had visited their relatives and friends in their homes in Fengxing Building, Xinghua Second Village, Chaiwan, and held a gathering on April 13.

It is reported that the 67-year-old female resident of the unit has been initially diagnosed yesterday.

The government announced last night that Fengxing Building in Xinghua 2nd Village was listed as a “restricted area”. Residents of this building must undergo compulsory testing, set up temporary sampling stations, and require people under inspection to be tested before 2 am tomorrow. The goal is to complete the operation at 7 o'clock this morning.

Many boxes of cup noodles were shipped into the building this morning

A large number of media interviewed outside the Fung Hing Building this morning. As of 1 pm, the government had not released the seal.

Police officers even set up movable railings outside the building's door, and many people wearing protective clothing kept climbing upstairs, suspected to be picking up with the staff who worked last night.

At about 10:30 this morning, the authorities also transported more than 20 boxes of Yidian and ABC cup noodles into the building.

Some parliamentarian assistants revealed that some households reported that because of the shortage of food at home, they asked all outsiders to ask for help to buy bread.

Recently, Allway Gardens, Kornhill, Pokfulam Heights, there have also been confirmed cases involving variant virus strains.

The government's consistent law, after the completion of mandatory testing, will arrange the entire building's residents to evacuate from isolation and quarantine.

As of 1:00 noon today, the authorities' actions have not yet been completed, and there has not been a large number of tourist buses arriving at the scene.

District councillors expected to be sent to the quarantine center for isolation

District Councillor Li Zhiqiang, who serves the second village of Xinghua, disclosed that because the authorities could not find some residents last night, they still arranged for them to be tested this morning, and the authorities have not disclosed the time of release to the residents.

According to the Hong Kong government's past handling method, since this case is also involved in a variant virus, he also estimates that the chance of residents being sent to the quarantine center for 21 days is quite high.

Some residents stayed behind for many hours, and there was a shortage of food at home, and they asked to buy bread to fill their stomachs.
