Zaina Sze, who is believed to be the first Hong Kong artiste to test positive for the coronavirus, had filmed a show at TVB City on Jul 16. Her manager’s boyfriend, actor Robert Mak, has also tested positive.
Hong Kong broadcaster TVB closed its headquarters, TVB City, for two days on Jul 18 (Saturday) and Jul 19 to undergo disinfection after a COVID-19 scare.
More than 100 people, including staff and artistes, had come into contact with singer Zaina Sze, believed to be the first Hong Kong celebrity to test positive for the coronavirus, when she was on the premises to film a music show on Jul 16.
According to reports, the 24-year-old Sze was not experiencing any symptoms but decided to get tested because other people around her were. She was confirmed positive on Jul 18.
Sze’s publicist, her manager and her manager’s boyfriend, actor Robert Mak, have also tested positive for COVID-19. Hong Kong’s Oriental Daily News reported that the 62-year-old Mak experienced breathing difficulties.
One of the people involved in filming the music show Jade Solid Gold was actress and singer Irene Wan. However, Wan later clarified that she had not come into contact with Sze as she had already left by the time Sze arrived.
Actress Kayan Yau also got tested as she had attended a drama class with Sze last week. She revealed in an online post on Sunday that she tested negative.
