"Well, in fact, we know of the Beijing, you know, situation, but actually there is no evidence to show that actually the virus from the food can actually go into human. So therefore, in Hong Kong, I think it's a precautionary measure we did, you know, do some testing in terms of our important food, imported food, especially the salmon. But then it is only as a precautionary measure because there is no such evidence to show that virus from the food can actually go into human."

"Well, right now, as far as the coronavirus is concerned, if people were confirmed of cases of the coronavirus, they should go into the isolation beds. So at the hospital authority, we have a good number of isolation beds. But as far as the people being injured, for example during the protest, they would have to go to the accident emergency departments to be assessed and then if they have problems then they would be admitted. Of course, you know if the two situations come together, it would pose a lot of pressure on the health care professionals. So this obviously poses a lot of challenges for us."

Storyline


Hong Kong has taken a precautionary measure to test imported and important food for the novel coronavirus, according to a senior Hong Kong official on Thursday.

Secretary for Food and Health of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government Sophia Chan Siu-chee made the remarks when speaking of Beijing's Xinfadi Agricultural Products Wholesale Market where the novel coronavirus was found in foods.

"We know of the Beijing, you know, situation, but actually there is no evidence to show that actually the virus from the food can actually go into human. So therefore, in Hong Kong, I think it's a precautionary measure we did, you know, do some testing in terms of our important food, imported food, especially the salmon. But then it is only as a precautionary measure because there is no such evidence to show that virus from the food can actually go into human," said Chan.

Since the cluster outbreak occurred at the Xinfadi market on June 11, as of 00:00 Friday, Beijing has reported 183 new confirmed COVID-19 cases.

Meanwhile, Chan also said that the HKSAR has enough isolation beds for receiving the COVID-19 patients, however, they still face challenges and pressure of receiving those who were injured due to the protest and the COVID-19 patients at the same time.

"As far as the coronavirus is concerned, if people were confirmed of cases of the coronavirus, they should go into the isolation beds. So at the hospital authority, we have a good number of isolation beds. But as far as the people being injured, for example during the protest, they would have to go to the accident emergency departments to be assessed and then if they have problems then they would be admitted. Of course, you know if the two situations come together, it would pose a lot of pressure on the health care professionals. So this obviously poses a lot of challenges for us," said Chan.
