A four-year-old boy who came down with severe respiratory syndrome after arriving from Saudi Arabia is being tested for a novel coronavirus that has infected two people in the Middle East.

 The Centre for Health Protection said last night it received a report from Ruttonjee Hospital yesterday. 

The boy arrived from Jeddah in Saudi Arabia with his father last Wednesday.

He went to Ruttonjee's accident and emergency department yesterday with fever, a cough and vomiting, and was transferred to Queen Mary Hospital for isolation, where his condition is stable.
