There were fears last night that the pneumonia virus could be further spread into the community by Amoy Gardens residents who have moved out since the outbreak began in the Ngau Tau Kok estate. Last night, at the meeting in Amoy Gardens, worried residents called on the government to despatch a medical team to the estate to provide immediate medical check-ups for every resident. Legislator Chan Kam-lam, speaking at the estate last night, said he did not know how many residents had moved out. Unconfirmed reports have claimed that most of the 240 households in the block most affected had already left. Mr Chan of the Democratic Alliance for Betterment of Hong Kong said: 'It's very dangerous and the government must take immediate action. We have received a lot of inquiries from residents who had expressed that they wanted to either move to a hotel or with relatives because they feared they might be the next victim,' he said. There are more than 16,000 residents at Amoy Gardens. Mr Chan said a list of recommendations would be presented to the government for consideration, including a move to give residents in block E an immediate health check and one week paid leave. More than 100 worried residents attended a meeting last night, organised by Mr Chan, at a park opposite Amoy Gardens. Li Suet-mui, the mother of an eight-year-old boy, accused the government and the estate management company of not taking residents' health seriously. She said a lot of her neighbours had moved out, especially those living in block E. Another resident said Amoy Gardens was like a 'ghost town'. She urged the management company to clease the entire estate every two hours. Several residents complained that there was no ventilation system in the lift lobby while one claimed ventilation fans had been sealed by the estate management. Blocks E, F, D and K are affected. There are about 240 households living in each block. Mr Chan said Hong Kong badly needed more measures to stop or prevent the disease from spreading. What the government was doing was inadequate, he said, because the virus seemed to be spreading 'very quickly'. He called on residents to co-operate with the authorities: 'Without your co-operation, we cannot win this war.'
