I don't see a new thread yet, but here's yesterday's chart:
I might even have to admit grumblingly that masks work and that the government hasn't spoiled too much. Wow.
A couple of items from the WARS site.
Fitness center might turn into a cluster.
A couple of others:[Pending Translation] The patient is in good health and has no travel history. He held a meeting at the home of patient # 801 and patient # 849 on March 31, with 7 to 8 participants. He then started to runny nose and diarrhea on April 3.
I think pilots / crew are exempted from quarantine after trips? Can someone confirm?The patient is a clinic operations assistant responsible for cleaning. She was working in the Shek Wu Hui clinic in Sheung Shui and also worked a day at the Ta Kwu Ling General Out-Patient Clinic. She did not interact with any other patients nor did she come into contact with any of the deep throat saliva samples. She went to work on April 3, 4, 6, and 7. She has good past health and no recent travel history. On April 3, she started having a sore throat.
The patient is a cargo plane pilot. He has good past health and was in Turkey and Kazakhstan between March 28 and April 3. On March 30, he started having sore throat and losing his sense of smell.The rest of the cases seem to be returnees, contacts of the Bar / M&S Karaoke cluster or have traceable family / social contacts.The patient is a Nepali 19-week pregnant women and lives with her son on Temple Street. She has good health history and no travel history, and began coughing on April 2.

I gather that as is often the case, if they don't get sick, the violations are not known but if they do, then they start looking into it and then actions can be taken. A bit like creative accounting on taxes, it's all good until you get audited.
Question: Why does the WARS site frequently describe the onset symptom as runny nose? I thought runny nose was specifically NOT a symptom of the corona virus.
Is something lost in translation? Does the Cantonese expression carry slightly different meanings?
A runny nose is common to most corona viruses (ie, common colds). SARS-COV-2 is one type of coronavirus, so a runny nose would seem common.
There are 13 cases today, 10 of which are imported from overseas. The number of cases is down from yesterday , hope this trend can continue
