Hong Kong records three imported Covid cases

Health officials on Wednesday reported three imported coronavirus cases, all of them infected with the L452R mutant strain.

The Centre for Health Protection said one of the patients – a 39-year-old woman from Turkey – had received one dose of the BioTech vaccine earlier, while a 27-year-old man from the United States had received two doses.

They showed no symptoms.

The third patient was a 31-year-old sailor.

There were also about five preliminary positive cases.
