    Shit, our HK office hamster is from Causeway Bay, pretty sure it's that pet store (Little Boss or somesuch). Better kill her, just to be safe...sorry, Bobo, but it's for the glory of the Motherland...

    We need to run a poll on what to blame next. Based on track history nothing can be ruled out.

    You just know someone somewhere in HK is now only opening mail wearing full PPE and spraying it with disinfectant, much like the baggage for incoming arrivals before it is put on the transport to PB/QT hotel.

    AFCD has tested the animals in Little Boss, preliminary positive samples from...hamsters. We did risk assessment. Although there is no evidence pets can pass to humans, to play safe, we will take precautionary measures to minimize the risk of transmission. AFCD will give notes to hamster keepers later. Case points out the importance of testing- some people didn't get tested right away and went about in the community...

    Do not overlook mild symptoms, test everyone...

    Pet shop clerk lives in Aberdeen, positive sample CT value of 21, two Biontech shots no travel history. Wore mask at work, cleans hamster cages. She traps the hamsters to show customers/sell to customers. She has been to hotpot and noodle shops 16 close contacts sent to quarantine, 76 people in her building tested negative.

    Some customer has tested positive and also the customer's husband (my question- who infected whom?). Sending customers now to quarantine (not just mandatory testing)- can't track those who paid cash.

    Visited the shop- over 100 animals there- taken 88 environmental samples from cages and feeding areas (tested postive) 20-30 workers at Tai Po pet warehouse off to quarantine.

    The hamsters were imported via Cathay Pacific’s cargo?

    7 January batch of hamsters- if you bought a hamster after 7 January, mandatory quarantine. Now, after 22nd December, HAND OVER YOUR HAMSTERS to AFCD... (everywhere? Or just this shop?).
