Two more Covid-19 cases have been linked to an eatery in Tuen Mun where three regular diners tested positive on Monday.

The latest patients – a 48-year-old woman and a 10-year-old girl – are said to be family members of those infected after dining at Do Shing Restaurant on Heung Sze Wui Road.

Another new local case on Wednesday is connected with the Tai Wai Transport City Building cluster. The latest patient is a 45-year-old man who lives in Shek Kip Mei.

There are now about a dozen infections in the outbreak at the industrial building.

These were among five local coronavirus cases reported in Hong Kong.

Health authorities reported nine cases in all. Four imported cases involved those coming from the Philippines, India, Britain and France. The patients are aged from 19 to 37.

The Centre for Health Protection did not hold its daily briefing as all local infections could be traced.

The total number of coronavirus cases in Hong Kong now stands at 4,985. There were 102 deaths so far.
