Sa Facebook post ng tanggapan nakasaad na mismong Hong Kong Health Department ang naghatid ng impormasyon sa ahensya na kumilala sa isang Pinay bilang ikatlong kaso ng kababayan na tinamaan ng sakit.

“The Hong Kong Health Department officially informed the Consulate General tonight that another Filipino has tested positive for COVID-19. She is in isolation and undergoing tests in the hospital.”

“The Consulate General just spoke to her and ascertained that she is healthy and presently not exhibiting any symptoms. She asked that her identity be kept secret.”

Ayon sa Centre for Health Protection (CHP) ng Hong Kong Health Department, isang 57-year old na household service worker ang Pinay na na-infect ng COVID-19.

“The patient has good past health and lives in Phase 1 of Redhill Peninsula in Tai Tam. She was asymptomatic and was earlier sent to the quarantine centre as a close contact. Her respiratory sample was tested positive for COVID-19 virus today,” ayon sa CHP.

“She is now under treatment at Queen Mary Hospital and is in a stable condition. The patient had no recent travel history and had not visit Fook Wai Ching She. Her close contacts (except the two confirmed patients), namely her employer and employer’s son have earlier been arranged for quarantine.”
