Our concern over local COVID-19 cases


The HKMA is concerned over the local cases in Shatin recently.  It showed that there is still a source of infection in the community and we need to be vigilant with our infection control measures.  We are grateful to our colleagues in private clinics who continue to see their patients, despite the fact that the patients may be suffering from COVID-19.  We urge them to continue to use appropriate PPEs and maintain good hygiene in the clinics.  We should be aware of the COVID disease and we should do the COVID tests if there is a suspicion of the disease, even if the symptoms are mild.


The HKMA regretted that an ambulance staff was infected on transferring the patient to hospital.  This showed the frontline staff can be infected and the COVID-19 should be classified as Occupational disease.







Notes to editors:

The Hong Kong Medical Association, founded in 1920, aims to bring together Hong Kong's government, institutional, university and private medical practitioners for an effective exchange of views and co-ordination of efforts.  The foremost objective of the Association is to safeguard and promote public health.  The Association speaks collectively for its members and aims to keep its members abreast of medical ethics, issues and advances around the world.  In fulfilling these goals, the association hopes to better serve the people of Hong Kong.
