Hong Kong/Xinhua: Hong Kong's Center for Health Protection (CHP) reported 19 additional cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday, including 14 local infections.

The newly reported cases brought the total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Hong Kong to 1,588.

Half of the 14 local cases are with unknown source of infection, while the rest related to cases confirmed earlier, Chuang Shuk-kwan, head of the CHP's Communicable Disease Branch, told a media briefing on Wednesday afternoon.

Since many of the confirmed cases involved elderly people recently, Cheung urged them to go out less.

According to Hong Kong's Hospital Authority, as of Wednesday noon 1,241 patients with confirmed or probable COVID-19 infection have been discharged from hospital upon recovery, and 315 confirmed patients remain hospitalized.
