There have been no admissions of COVID-19 positive people to hospitals in the last four days.

Permanent Secretary for Health Doctor James Fong says there is a sustained downward trend in daily hospitalizations.

Dr.Fong says using the WHO clinical severity classification, there are no cases in the asymptomatic, mild, moderate, severe, and critical categories. Anyone admitted to the hospital is tested before admission. Therefore, a significant number of people are admitted to the hospital for non-covid health conditions, but incidentally test positive due to the high amount of transmission in the community.
