Swine Flu Hits Asia Hong Kong Hotel in Quarantine

Category: Tourism, Posted:02 May 2009 | 10:04 am

Hong Kong's Metropark hotel in Wanchai has seen over 300 people sealed off and is under quarantine after a guest who had traveled to Mexico was confirmed to have the virus. South Korea has also reported its first case. Deaths from the epidemic now are close to 400.
I spoke to a few hotel contacts in Hong Kong this morning and most properties are now in the midst of contingency planning should further cases occur in the SAR.
