Singer Zaina Sze has become the first Hongkong artiste to be diagnosed with COVID-19. According to reps, the 24-year-old was not experiencing any symptoms but decided to go get tested as others around her were showing signs of the disease, only to find out that she was infected as well. Her publicist Ah Jia, her manager Apple Lau, and Apple’s actor boyfriend Robert Mak have also tested positive for the highly contagious virus.
As Zaina had visited TVB City multiple times for events and interviews recently, the station announced that it will be under lockdown on July 19 and 20, cancelling all activities on those two days. Large-scale disinfection measures were carried out almost immediately, and all TVB employees are required to go for testing.
