Sixty-five Hong Kong residents, who took the chartered flights arranged by the HKSAR government, arrived Hong Kong from Peru on April 5. The cost was borne by the users. These residents proceeded to the testing centre at the AsiaWorld-Expo for coronavirus testing and if tested negative, they can return home or proceed to a designated place to continue completion of the 14-day compulsory quarantine.
The HK Immigration Department earlier received a total of 98 requests for assistance from Hong Kong residents stranded there, as Peru declared a state of national emergency in mid-March because of the coronavirus. Among the residents who sought assistance, one of them passed away in Peru because of infection and 13 have left there already through other arrangements. Currently at least four are required to stay in Peru for quarantine and undergo virus testing.
