The CHP is also closely monitoring an additional human case of avian influenza A(H7N9) in Shanghai. According to the latest report of the Mainland health authority, the 38-year-old male patient's case was confirmed yesterday and he was hospitalised for isolation and management.
"Locally, we will remain vigilant and work closely with the World Health Organization and relevant health authorities to monitor the latest developments," a spokesman for the DH said.
"In view of cases confirmed on the Mainland, members of the public should maintain good personal, food and environmental hygiene at all times during travel," the spokesman urged.
"All boundary control points have implemented disease prevention and control measures. Thermal imaging systems are in place for body temperature checks of inbound travellers. Suspected cases will be immediately referred to public hospitals for follow-up investigation," the spokesman added.
