The Hong Kong government yesterday lifted a home quarantine measure on a tour group that returned from Taiwan after a six-year-old girl in the party, suspected of having Sars, was given the all-clear. The Department of Health last night said the girl, who was a member of the tour party, had been cleared after detailed medical examination and observation. The department also immediately lifted the quarantine imposed on the other 31 tour members after they returned from Taiwan early yesterday. The group had been confined by the Taipei authorities to the Kilin Hotel for 10 days from April 26. The Taiwan authorities said they suspected the girl to be a Sars carrier after she developed a fever during the trip and was admitted to hospital. But her temperature later went down and doctors found no other symptoms of Sars. The drama ended yesterday morning after Taipei agreed the group could return to Hong Kong on a chartered flight arranged by the Hong Kong government. Taiwan announced on Sunday a 10-day quarantine measure for all visitors from Hong Kong after the Sars virus started to spread into hospitals on the island.
