Government renders utmost assistance to Hong Kong people in Hubei infected with novel coronavirus
     A spokesman for the Constitutional and Mainland Affairs Bureau said today (February 12) that the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government has recently received notifications from the relevant Mainland authorities and the Wuhan Economic and Trade Office (Wuhan ETO) that there are 10 Hong Kong people, involving three families, infected with novel coronavirus in Hubei. Seven of them are staying in Wuhan and three are in Enshi. 

     "After being informed of the situation, we immediately tasked the Wuhan ETO to render all possible assistance to the Hong Kong people concerned. Thanks to the efforts devoted by Wuhan ETO in coordinating with the relevant authorities, six of them have been admitted to local hospitals within a short time, while the remaining four have made their own way to seek medical treatment from hospitals. At present, all of them are being treated in local hospitals and are generally in stable condition," the spokesman said.

    "The Wuhan ETO will continue to maintain close communication with the people concerned, and will try its very best to provide assistance to them to ensure that they are receiving suitable treatment and medical care."
