SARS Support Group Calls for Ban for Entering Hong Kong for Non-locals Who Visited Wuhan in the Past Month

The Hong Kong SARS Mutual Help Association, representing more than 300 patients who recovered from the SARS epidemic in 2003, called for the Government to truly learn the hard lessons of SARS and make every effort to prevent the epidemic from affecting the city’s economy and livelihood.

The Association urged the government to take all feasible measures to minimize the impact of the Wuhan pneumonia on Hong Kong, including prohibiting non-locals who have visited Wuhan in the past month from entering Hong Kong. Besides, it also asked for those who travelled from China, be it Mainlanders or Hong Kong residents to complete a health declaration.

The Association was of the view that if the situation concerning Wuhan Pneumonia continued to deteriorate, the government should consider prohibiting all Mainlanders from coming to Hong Kong until the situation improves.
