Two variants of the virus, Delta and Omicron, have attacked Hong Kong. Several fires have emerged in many districts. Today (20th), 14 new confirmed cases were reported, of which 10 were local infections.

Zhang Zhujun, director of the Infectious Diseases Division of the Centre for Health Protection of the Department of Health, pointed out that the confirmed 17-year-old male student of St. Joseph's English Secondary School (case number: 13088) was found to be infected with the Delta variant virus after full genetic analysis.

Zhang Zhujun: It may be the second animal or human being infected

Zhang Zhujun pointed out that the whole gene analysis of the University of Science and Technology found that although the patient was infected with the Delta variant virus, it was different from the virus gene of the clerk of the pet store Little Boss, and it was suspected that there were other sources: "It may be a second animal or a human being infected." .

She continued to point out that the virus genes of the other two people who were diagnosed after visiting the little boss pet store were also different from those of the store staff, and she believed that the chance of animal-to-human transmission was increasing.

Very worried about the hidden transmission in the community, and then appeal to citizens who have bought hamsters

Zhang said that if animal-to-human transmission occurs, the genes of the two viruses may be different, but the 17-year-old male student of St. Joseph's English Middle School has never been to a pet store or raised small animals. It is estimated that the source of his infection is also human-to-human transmission. The generation or transmission is unclear, so I am very worried about the hidden transmission in the community, and I appeal to citizens who have bought pets or went to pet stores to get tested.
