Officials in Hong Kong took the action Friday after detecting nearly 60 imported cases over a two-week period.

The Hong Kong Department of Health has put a two-week ban on direct flights from Vancouver to Hong Kong operated by Air Canada.

Officials in Hong Kong took the action Friday after detecting nearly 60 imported cases over a two-week period.

One of those cases was on an Oct. 13 Air Canada flight from Vancouver to Hong Kong, officials said in a media release.

One passenger on the flight also “failed to comply with the requirements specified under the Prevention and Control of Disease Regulation,” it said.

As a result, Hong Kong is prohibiting the landing of Air Canada passenger flights from Vancouver until Oct. 29, it said.

Air Canada said it was cancelling flights schedule don Oct. 16, 23, 26 and 29 as a result, but noted its Toronto-Hong Kong flights were unaffected.
