COVID-19 confirmed cases in Hong Kong have risen to a total of 82
According to the announcement of The Centre for Health Protection at 8 PM on Monday (Feb.24), the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 had risen to 81, after two more quarantined passengers, both aged 57, from the Diamond Princess cruise ship tested positive for the virus. The two patients are in stable condition in Queen Mary Hospital. Another case was confirmed today, involving a 24-year-old man who is a relative of an attendee at the Fook Wai Ching She Buddhist temple in North Point, adding the number to a total of 82.
The Hong Kong Government said on Monday it would arrange charter flights to bring home Hong Kong residents stranded in virus-hit Hubei Province, but HK officials still needed to iron out details with their Hubei counterparts. The Secretary for Constitutional and Mainland Affairs, Patrick Nip, said priority would be given to those currently in the provincial capital Wuhan, as well as others with special needs, such as pregnant women and those with underlying illnesses.
