The HKSAR government have announced that from Saturday 8th February 2020 12am - all people coming in from Mainland China will be subject to enforced quarantine for 14 days. This applies to all nationalities. In addition, if you have visited Mainland China in the past 14 days and come in from another country, you will also be subject to quarantine. Further details will announced later as to whether this will be in camps or at home with the use of GPS bracelets. We would advise all patients in China to come back to HK in the next 24hrs to avoid the quarantine measures.
This is partly in response to the new Coronavirus cases in the past 2 days in which the patients have had no previous travel to China. This would suggest that the virus is already spreading within the HK community. If this is the case then we would expect more infection cases in the next 2 weeks.
