Hong Kong: Lei Yue Mun holiday park accepting mild COVID-19 quarantine cases

Lei Yue Mun Park and Holiday Village, north east of Hong Kong, has started receiving patients with mild cases of COVID-19 on Saturday. The holiday campsite has been set up with 300 quarantine homes, as daily additional cases hit a new high of 118. A couple of vehicles were seen driving out of the facilities as one pulled over at the police checkpoint so medical staff could talk to an official before entering the community isolation site. A clinical waste truck was seen soon after entering the vast facility, covering an area of around 23 hectares (57 acres). Facing the fishing village of Lei Yue Mun, Lei Yue Mun Park and Holiday Village facilities used to be Lyemun Barracks, one of the earliest and most important British Army fortifications in Hong Kong. The holiday village was used for COVID-19 quarantine at the start of the outbreak in early 2020. The camp is due to reopen in September. As of Saturday, Hong Kong reported 2,372 coronavirus cases and 17 linked fatalities, as Johns Hopkins University compiled data shows.
