    Press Release

    SFH, DoH and Controller of CHP on MERS

    Following is the transcript of remarks made by the Secretary for Food and Health, Dr Ko Wing-man; the Director of Health, Dr Constance Chan; and the Controller of the Centre for Health Protection of the Department of Health, Dr Leung Ting-****, at a media session on the latest developments of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) at the Central Government Offices this afternoon (June 8):

    Secretary for Food and Health: I am very concerned about the development of the outbreaks of MERS in Middle East and the Republic of Korea. Because of the very close and frequent personnel exchange between Hong Kong and Korea, we are particularly concerned about the recent development in Korea. We notice that there is a significant increase in the number of tertiary transmission among the confirmed MERS cases. It has actually exceeded the other categories in all the confirmed cases. At the same time, according to media reports, there is a recent confirmed MERS patient in Busan. All these factors have significantly increased the risk of community outbreak of the disease in Korea. I have, therefore, just convened an interdepartmental meeting under the MERS Preparedness Plan and decided to raise the response level from "Alert" to "Serious". At the same time, the Department of Health has also issued a travel health advice. We appeal to members of the public to avoid unnecessary travel to the Republic of Korea. If there is a need to be there, please avoid visiting health-care institutions and take necessary infection control measures, such as wearing a mask and pay attention to hand hygiene.
