The government on Friday cordoned off two public housing blocks in Kowloon City after sewage samples taken from the buildings tested positive for Covid-19.

A government spokesman said authorities suspect some of the residents of Tak Shan House and Tak Kei House at Tak Long Estate are infected but don’t have symptoms.

“Given the risk of infection in the relevant area is assessed to be likely higher, the government decided to make a ‘restriction-testing declaration’ for the relevant area,” the spokesman said.
