From CHP :
" A spokesman for the Centre for Health Protection (CHP) of the Department of Health (DH) today (July 16) provided an update on a suspected case of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome affecting a 28-year-old man.
The CHP received notification from Kwong Wah Hospital (KWH) yesterday (July 15). The male patient, with good past health, developed diarrhoea and vomiting yesterday and attended KWH for treatment. The CHP received notification from the hospital again this morning that his 26-year-old wife also developed diarrhoea and abdominal pain last night. They were admitted to KWH for further management under isolation.
The preliminary laboratory testing by the Public Health Laboratory Services Branch of the CHP on their respiratory and stool specimens both yielded negative results for Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus. Both patients are in stable condition.
The duo had travelled to Europe and Dubai from June 25 to July 12 and arrived in Hong Kong on July 13.
Locally, the CHP will continue its surveillance mechanism with public and private hospitals, practising doctors and the airport for any suspected case of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome."
