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.
