The CoronaVirus is taking its toll worldwide, and a recent spike in Hong Kong cases has seen the government take further action to restrict cross-border movement and social interactions – this has been especially needed due to the recent case cluster in the city’s main nightlife districts, specifically Lan Kwai Fong.
One of the main news stories in relation to Covid19 over the last week is how should we (both as a society, and more specifically those in the healthcare field) be treating the virus. This is a fairly complicated issue, as social distancing is seen to be the most effective way to slow the spread of the disease in light of the fact that there are, currently, no proven treatments, cures, or vaccines for the coronavirus.

In recent weeks the Chinese University of Hong Kong revealed the successful development of a new test designed to detect a dangerous pregnancy condition; preterm pre-eclampsia. Under current healthcare protocols in Hong Kong only a quarter of women who are high-risk for developing preterm pre-eclampsia are diagnosed.
The condition is defined as “high-risk” for pregnancies, and can lead to death of both the mother and the fetus, but does not display any overt symptoms for expectant mothers meaning that it can often go undetected and undiagnosed, leading to severe mortality threats for both mother and child.

On March 17th 2019 the South China Morning Post reported that the government is set to unveil a new voluntary health insurance scheme that is meant to cater specifically to the medical needs of newborns and children for as little as HK$2,000 per year.
The government has launched the first stage of the Voluntary Health Insurance Scheme (also being called the VHS) with the intent of having young parents cover their children through private health insurance from 15 days to 100 years old.
