Hong Kong (HKSAR) - Following is the transcript of remarks made by the
Secretary for Food and Health, Dr Ko Wing-man, after attending a public
function this morning (March 17):
Secretary for Food and Health:
Regarding a report saying that not all the patients contracted the new
novel coronavirus would display serious clinical symptoms, I think this
is a phenomenon which is common to all infectious diseases. That is to
say, patients contracting any infectious diseases may demonstrate a wide
range of clinical manifestations, including some with very severe
symptoms and some with no clinical symptoms at all. I would like to
reiterate that this is a common phenomenon for all infectious diseases.
This would remind all of us, including our clinical staff, that we
always have to maintain a high level of alert and vigilance. Thank you.
