Young male not identified as imported case for now

An 18-year-old man, a Macau resident who recovered from Covid-19 and then tested positive again on June 15 whilst observing mandatory quarantine after his return to Macau from Hong Kong, is not classified as an imported case for now, said Leong Iek Hou, coordinator at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention yesterday.
The man was confirmed to have come down with coronavirus in Hong Kong on December 15 last year and subsequently recovered. He returned to Macau on June 13 and tested negative on that day.
He was admitted to Pousada Marina Infante Hotel to observe mandatory quarantine upon arrival and then returned a mildly positive test result on June 15.
Considering that he contracted the disease in Hong Kong a while ago and has not developed any symptoms related to the coronavirus, the health authorities will conduct further investigation to determine whether the individual is testing positive again to the original infection or is subject to a second infection.
He will therefore not be identified as an imported case for Macau at the moment, Leong stated.
