SFH on medical incident
     Following is the transcript of remarks made by the Secretary for Food and Health, Dr Ko Wing-man, after attending a public function today (May 9):

Reporter: The Hospital Authority (HA) was only informed of the blunders two weeks after……

Secretary for Food and Health: I am very concerned about the medical incident concerning Madam Tang who has received two consecutive liver transplants and is now still under intensive care at the Queen Mary Hospital. It is most regrettable that during looking after Madam Tang, the United Christian Hospital has not made the arrangement of antiviral coverage to Madam Tang in the course of high dose steroid therapy for another condition. The HA will need to conduct a very thorough and independent investigation to find out the cause of such omission and the appropriate way of handling this incident.
