《全民新聞台》[港聞]34歲男病人確診猴痘 疑為輸入個案





The Centre for Health Protection (CHP) of the Department of Health (DH) said today that it is investigating a confirmed Mpox (also known as Monkeypox) case related to a suspected imported case and urged the public to heighten vigilance and avoid close physical contact with persons suspected of contracting Mpox. Meanwhile, high-risk target groups are advised to receive Mpox vaccination.

The confirmed case involves a 34-year-old male patient with good past health who has not received Mpox vaccination. He developed localised rash over his body since April 12. He consulted a general practitioner yesterday (April 19) due to his unresolved rash and was arranged to be admitted to Princess Margaret Hospital for further treatment on the same day. The patient is isolated in an isolation room and is now in stable condition. The CHP's Public Health Laboratory Services Branch today confirmed that his samples tested positive for the virus.

An initial investigation revealed that he had high risk exposure during the incubation period. According to the patient, one of his close contacts has recent travel history to Mpox-affected areas (including Korea and Taiwan) and has developed body rash since April 12. This close contact has been identified as a suspected imported case and the CHP has arranged admission for that close contact for further treatment and tests. Separately, the confirmed case has travelled to Macao from April 4 to April 5. The CHP is arranging two household contacts of the patient to undergo quarantine and receive post-exposure vaccination. They remained asymptomatic so far. The CHP's epidemiological investigations of the case are ongoing.
