HA reports 2 initially positive cases

The Hospital Authority today reported two preliminary positive cases of COVID-19 involving a patient at Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) and a clerical staff at Tuen Mun Eye Centre.   It said a 52-year-old male patient was admitted to the accident and emergency department of PMH on January 22 due to epigastric pain, vomiting and fever. He did not have other respiratory symptoms at the time.   He was transferred to the surgical ward for further treatment after undergoing an admission screening for COVID-19.    The patient received the preliminary positive result today after being tested in community on January 22. His test arranged by the hospital was also positive for COVID-19.   He was immediately transferred to the isolation ward for further treatment.   Another patient who had stayed in the bed adjacent to the patient concerned in the surgical ward was classified as a close contact and will be quarantined for 14 days. The hospital will also arrange viral testing for that patient.   So far, no staff have been classified as close contacts. PMH has arranged thorough cleansing and disinfection of the ward concerned.   The clerical staff at Tuen Mun Eye Centre attended the Tuen Mun Hospital’s accident and emergency department yesterday due to fever. Her test result released last night was preliminary positive.   She mainly handles clerical work related to surgery appointment booking on the 3/F and seldom has contact with patients. She last attended work yesterday morning.   Five colleagues were classified as close contacts and will be quarantined for 14 days. Another nurse, classified as other contact, will undergo 28 days of medical surveillance.   As a precautionary measure, the eye centre will arrange for 20 patients who recently visited 3/F and around 120 staff and outsourced workers to undergo COVID-19 testing.   Additionally, about 100 patients and staff at the Renal Dialysis Centre on the 1/F in the same building will undergo virus testing.

Where is Hong Kong?

Positioned at the mouth of the Pearl River Delta on the coast of southern China, Hong Kong’s geographical position as a gateway between the East and West has made it an attractive centre for international trade. As a reflection of this, the heart of Asia’s world city has always been the bustling and beautiful Victoria Harbour. Hong Kong’s 1,104-square-kilometer area comprises Hong Kong Island, which lies to the south of the harbour, the Kowloon Peninsula, which forms its northern shores, the New Territories to the north of Kowloon, which stretch all the way to Mainland China, and more than 200 outlying islands, including Lantau Island, where Hong Kong International Airport is located.
