The Centre for Health Protection advised HKSPC Sze Wu Shu Min Nursery School in Tseung Kwan O to suspend classes for two weeks from today for disinfection after enterovirus-71 infections were confirmed in a boy and a girl, both aged two. Fourteen other children had also developed symptoms of hand-foot-mouth disease, which can be caused by the virus, since March 2.
