STAFF, OTHER PATIENTS TEST NEGATIVE FOR COVID-19

May 08, 2020

After one patient of St Luke’s Hospital tested positive for COVID-19 on 6 May 2020, other patients and staff in the affected ward were swabbed. All these other patients and staff have tested negative.

To date, only one patient, who was tested as a precaution, has tested positive. The hospital has implemented multiple safety measures including separation of staff into zones to prevent cross infection, safe distancing, and daily temperature taking including those not involved in patient care. Staff and other workers entering the wards such as cleaners wear surgical masks. Hospital visits by patients’ families were restricted too.

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

职员、其他病人感染COVID-19新型冠状病毒

202056日,圣路加医院的一名病人确诊COVID-19新型冠状病毒后,受影响病房中的其他病人和职员进行了测试。这些病人和职员的检验结果确定,他们都没有感染COVID-19新型冠状病毒。

至今,只有一名在医院的预防措施之下进行测试的病人确诊。医院已经实施了多种安全措施,包括把工作人员分到多个不同的工作区以防止交叉感染、保持安全距离,以及日常体温测试。不参与病人护理的工作人员也必须遵守上列措施。进入病房的员工和其他员工,例如清洁工,都必须戴上手术口罩。我们也限制家属到医院探访病人。

我们将继续维护所有病人、职员和合作伙伴的健康
