THREE cases so far.
OMG, time for global panic!
Better line up and get your shots...PRONTO.
From Hilary W(r)ong in the HK Standard-
Friday, December 06, 2013Secretary for Food and Health Ko Wing- man has denied it is a waste of resources to open a quarantine center for only three people.
Members of the family, who employ a 36-year-old Indonesian helper critically ill with the H7N9 bird flu strain, opted to be quarantined at Lady MacLehose Holiday Village in Sai Kung.
Fourteen others who were in close contact with the helper, including a 33-year-old friend who accompanied her to Shenzhen to buy live chicken, chose to stay at Princess Margaret or Tuen Mun hospitals.
"It was not a waste of resources because this arrangement was necessary," Ko said. "While the three people had no infection symptoms and need not stay at the hospital, the Centre for Health Protection can decide on an individual situation where to be isolated."
