The last member of the four-strong Delta family cluster, who sparked an unprecedented city-wide nucleic acid test in August and a two-week lockdown of their residential building, has been discharged from hospital, the Health Bureau has announced.

The 51-year-old driver, the father of the schoolgirl who became infected with the virulent strain of Covid-19 during a school trip to Xi’an, has not been identified by name.

It is understood that the entire family has now returned to their apartment in Mei Lin Building on Rua de Coelho do Amaral.

Including the Delta variant family cluster, Macao has recorded 63 Covid-19 cases since 22 January last year.

Before the four latest cases, Macao’s total of 59 Covid-19 cases comprised 57 imported cases and two cases connected to imported ones.

The Health Bureau classified the case of the Delta variant family’s schoolgirl as an imported case, while her three parents’ and brother’s cases were classified as “connected to imported cases”.

Consequently, the 63 cases comprise 58 imported cases and five cases connected to imported ones.

As of 4 pm yesterday, 621,410 doses of Covid-19 vaccine had been administered to 332,204 people in Macao, comprising 41,009 who had received their first jab and 291,195 who had received their second jab.

Macao’s Covid-19 vaccination rate stood at 48.7 per cent as of 4 pm yesterday. According to the latest statistics, Macao’s population stood at 682,500 at the end of June.

A total of 14 adverse events were reported in the past 24 hours (until 4 pm yesterday). The total number of adverse events since the start of the vaccination drive stood at 2,661, or 0.43  per cent of the total number of jabs, including eight serious cases.
