    Looking at the new cases on the local WARS website it does seem like all cases over the last 24 hours are connected to overseas travel or 1 degree of separation from someone who has travelled overseas.

    Far too many to attempt a summary...

    Kowloon Mosque closed according to Stand News. They are unsure if an imported case visited their mosque or smaller ones in SSP but they decided to close in the interest of public heath and safety stating that 4,000-5,000 people gather there per day.

    There was an earlier case (yesterday?) of someone who had visited the mosque and was later diagnosed as being positive for covid-19.

    Patient is a tourist. He developed cough since Mar 8 and attended Queen Elizabeth Hospital yesterday where he was admitted for treatment. His respiratory sample was tested positive for coronavirus on Mar 16 and he is now in stable condition. The patient had travelled to Dubai, United Arab Emirates between Feb 25 and Mar 10. He took Emirates flight EK380 from Dubai arriving Hong Kong on the same day and had been staying alone in Whole Sunshine International Hotel in Chungking Mansion, Tsim Sha Tsui upon arrival. Patient went to a mosque for afternoon salat on Mar 13 then shopped at Cheung Sha Wan for electronic appliance.

    Given that most churches shut down over a month ago, they are a little bit late to the party...but better late than never.
