Hong Kong : Isolation dad explains bid for freedom

Via The Standard, excerpt :

" The father of a family who left an isolation ward at Queen Elizabeth Hospital without permission said he had been on the verge of a nervous breakdown over the dissatisfactory arrangements.

The family - a two-year-old boy, who earlier had been admitted to hospital with flu, and his parents - were ordered to return on Wednesday for isolation at the hospital as the boy was placed next to an 18-month- old girl who was later confirmed with H7N9 bird flu.

The family left the ward that night without permission.

The three were eventually persuaded to return after they were put in two neighboring isolation rooms on the same floor. They will remain there until March 13."
