January 14, 2013
The Centre for Health Protection is investigating an influenza-like illness outbreak at a Sham Shui Po primary school, affecting 20 students.
The four boys and 16 girls, all aged six, have come down with upper respiratory tract infection symptoms since January 8.
Sixteen sought medical consultation from private doctors. None required hospitalisation, and all are stable.
The centre’s staff have visited the school and advised the management to adopt measures against respiratory tract infections.
