The government on Sunday locked down a number of housing blocks in Kwun Tong, Yuen Long, Kwai Chung and Sha Tin, after sewage samples there were found to contain Covid-19.

The buildings are Sau Fu House in Sau Mau Ping Estate, Heng Chui House and Heng Chun House in Tin Heng Estate, Shek Sau House of Shek Lei Estate as well as Yan Wo House and Man Wo House of Wo Che Estate.
