Citywide RAT to Curb COVID Spread

​​In order to swiftly sever the silenttransmission chains in the community, the Chief Executive made an appeal on April 2, 2022 to all Hong Kong citizens to take rapid antigen test (RAT) for three consecutive days from April 8 to 10 (Friday to Sunday), and to wear KN95 masks. Positive results should be reported within 24 hours to the Centre for Health Protection’s online Declaration System for individuals tested positive for COVID-19 using RAT (, so that the confirmed cases can receive appropriate isolation and treatment early, and the silent transmission chains in the community can be severed as soon as possible.

​​All households in Hong Kong will receive the anti-epidemic service bags.  The Government hopes that the public will make good use of the RAT kits and KN95 masks in the anti-epidemic service bags, and to do the tests so that the infected can be identified early for isolation and treatment.
