The family of a taxi driver has received HK$3,000 as compensation for financial losses that he is suffering while under quarantine. The driver, surnamed Wu, was one of two who had ferried the Mexican later found to be infected with the swine flu virus. Mr Wu drove the Mexican from the airport to the Metropark Hotel in Wan Chai. The Taxi and Public Light Bus Concern Group yesterday gave the money to Mr Wu's wife. The council's chairman, Lai Ming-hung, said more money would be given to them if need be. The other cabbie, surnamed Tam, told the council that he did not require financial help as he was unmarried and did not have any family burdens. The two taxi drivers are quarantined for seven days. Both are in good health and staying at the Lady MacLehose Holiday Village. The council promised up to HK$1,000 a day to each driver.
