PATIENT CONFIRMED AS COVID-19 CASE

May 06, 2020

A patient of St Luke’s Hospital was confirmed positive for COVID-19 on 6 May 2020. She had no symptoms of acute respiratory infection but was tested as part of the hospital’s precautionary measures.

Patient has been transferred to NCID.

The affected ward has undergone deep cleansing and disinfection. Testing of patients and staff working in the ward have started. None of them have symptoms of acute respiratory infection and will continue to be monitored. Contact tracing has also started.

The hospital has been taking precautions since January. Besides the COVID-19 test, other measures include separation of staff into zones to prevent cross infection, safe distancing, and twice-daily temperature taking including those not involved in patient care. Those who are unwell are advised not to come to the hospital.

We will continue to closely monitor the situation to ensure the well-being of patients, staff and partners.

202056日,圣路加医院的一名病人被确诊为COVID-19新型冠状病毒。该名病人并没有呈现任何急性呼吸道症状,但在医院的预防措施之下进行了测试。

患者已被转送到国家传染病中心(NCID)。

受影响的病房已完成了深层清洁和消毒。我们已开始为病房中的病人和工作人员进行测试。他们并没有呈现急性呼吸道感染的症状。我们会继续关注他们的健康状况。我院也已经对该病患的接触者展开追踪工作。

自一月起,医院一直不间断地采取了一系列的预防措施。除COVID-19测试外,其他措施还包括把工作人员分到多个不同的工作区,以防止交叉感染,以及保持安全距离和每天两次的体温测试,包括不参与病人护理的工作人员。医院也建议身体不适的员工不要上班。

我们将继续密切观察情况的进展,竭尽所能,维护所有病人、职员和合作伙伴的健康。
