The case was imported from overseas and there was no new local infection on Wednesday, Hong Kong's Center for Health Protection said.
Over the past 14 days, 24 cases were found, including eight locally transmitted and one preliminarily listed as local infection.
As the epidemic remains under control, daily lives in Hong Kong are gradually resuming to normalcy.
