The first case was detected in a 36-year-old man, a Mainland resident, who is an operator at Pier No.5 of the Inner Harbour. The nucleic acid tests were negative on November 26 and 27. On Wednesday morning, the man performed a rapid antigen test due to feeling unwell, and the respective result was positive. He then uploaded the relevant rapid antigen test result for COVID-19 to the Platform. The patient was immediately referred by the Health Services to the Special Emergency Department of CHSCJ to undergo the nucleic acid test and the result was positive. The patient is under medical observation in isolation at England Marina Club Hotel and has been classified as a case related to the imported case of COVID-19 infection. According to epidemiological investigations, the patient was in Zhuhai City on November 27 and 28, and had meals in various places in Macau on November 28 and 29. The second case was detected in a 29-year-old female resident of Macau, who is the wife of the first case above and is an employee of the Human Resources Department of Wynn Palace Casino. She had not been tested for nucleic acid in the past two weeks. On Wednesday morning, the patient was referred to the Special Emergency Department of CHSCJ to undergo the nucleic acid test because of the positive result of her husband in the rapid antigen test, and the nucleic acid test was positive. She did not show any symptoms. The woman is subject to medical observation in isolation at England Marina Club Hotel and this case has been classified as an imported case associated with asymptomatic infection.

Furthermore, two (2) cases have been diagnosed related to imported cases of COVID-19 infection in the areas under control (both are under control as of 28 November), hence the risk of community transmission is relatively low.
