A teacher who sparked a tuberculosis alert last month has been found not to have contracted the disease after all. In a test by a British hospital, Clare Lennon tested negative for TB, despite a positive test result in April at Hong Kong's Queen Mary Hospital laboratory. Meanwhile, a migrant who arrived in the city last month has tested positive for a multi-drug-resistant form of TB.
