Hong Kong : CHP investigates influenza-like illness outbreak

Another press release from Hong Kong's Center for Health Protection, this time with regards to an ILI outbreak :

" The Centre for Health Protection (CHP) of the Department of Health today (December 7) urged members of the public and management of institutions to maintain good environmental and personal hygiene to prevent influenza.

The appeal was made after the CHP received a report of an influenza-like illness outbreak at a kindergarten in Kwun Tong, affecting 23 children.

The affected children comprise seven boys and 16 girls aged between three and five. They developed symptoms of respiratory tract infection, including fever, cough and sore throat beginning from November 27.

Two of them required hospitalisation. All those affected are in a stable condition."
