《全民新聞台》[港聞]再多一宗猴痘輸入個案 為昨日確診個案的密切接觸者


[2023年4月21日]

衞生署衞生防護中心表示再多一宗猴痘輸入個案,是昨日公布一宗猴痘確診個案(涉及一名34歲男子)的密切接觸者,為一名過往健康良好的25歲男病人,他沒有接種猴痘疫苗。他於4月上旬開始出現肌肉痛及皮疹,並於4月15日向私家醫生求診,當時的初步診斷為水痘,於昨日被列作懷疑輸入個案和安排入住瑪嘉烈醫院作進一步檢測。衞生防護中心公共衞生化驗服務處今日確認病人的樣本測試結果對猴痘病毒呈陽性。病人現時情況穩定。


根據病人提供的資料,他近期曾到訪受猴痘影響地區,包括曾於3月26日至4月5日期間到訪韓國及台灣。他於潛伏期內的高風險接觸仍在調查中。中心正安排病人的兩名同住家人在醫院進行檢疫並接受暴露後疫苗接種,他們暫時沒有出現病徵。流行病學調查仍在進行中。


衞生防護中心呼籲市民,尤其是暴露風險較高的人士,採取預防措施,避免與懷疑感染猴痘的人或動物作密切身體接觸。如出現皮疹、發燒、發冷、淋巴結腫大、疲乏、肌肉痛及劇烈頭痛等猴痘症狀,應盡快求醫。猴痘並非如新冠病毒般可經短暫接觸呼吸道飛沫傳播,亦不會經一般的社交接觸傳播,良好個人及手部衞生有助預防經接觸感染病毒。


The imported case involves a 25-year-old male patient with good past health who has not received Mpox vaccination. He had developed myalgia and rash over his body since early April. He consulted a general practitioner on April 15 with preliminary diagnosis of chickenpox. He is a close contact of a confirmed Mpox case (involving a 34-year-old male) announced yesterday. He was identified as a suspected imported case yesterday and was arranged to be admitted to Princess Margaret Hospital for further testing. The CHP's Public Health Laboratory Services Branch today confirmed that his samples tested positive for the virus. He is now in stable condition.


According to the patient, he has recent travel history to Mpox-affected areas including Korea and Taiwan from March 26 to April 5. His high risk exposure during the incubation period is under investigation. The CHP is arranging two household contacts of the patient to undergo quarantine at hospital and receive post-exposure vaccination. They remained asymptomatic so far. The CHP's epidemiological investigations of the case are ongoing.


The case announced yesterday is now reclassified as import-related Mpox case. A total of three imported Mpox cases and one import-related case have been recorded since September last year.
