     In view of the multiple COVID-19 confirmed cases detected at Yat Kwai House in Kwai Chung Estate, the Home Affairs Department and the Kwai Tsing District Office (K&TDO) distributed COVID-19 rapid test kits to 3 460 households in the four buildings near Yat Kwai House (i.e. Nga Kwai House, Yuk Kwai House, Ying Kwai House and Hiu Kwai House) through their letter boxes this morning (January 21) for the residents to take the test by themselves, in the hope of identifying infected persons early, so as to better protect infected persons and their families. However, the K&TDO stressed that rapid test kit testing is not a substitute for the Government's compulsory testing requirement.

     The Government appeals for the co-operation of members of the public to safeguard the health of themselves and their families by undergoing testing on a voluntary basis and fight the virus together. The Government urges all individuals who are in doubt about their own health condition, or individuals with infection risks (such as individuals who visited places with epidemic outbreaks or had contact with cases that tested positive), to undergo testing promptly for early identification of infected persons to reduce the transmission risks of COVID-19.
