The Health Bureau and Education and Youth Affairs Bureau (DSEJ) jointly announced the urinary tests for the milk program students had essentially been completed.
According to the announcement, there were no further diagnoses found, excluding the three girls and one baby girl who were previously diagnosed with having kidney stones.
The inter-developmental working group will assess the first phase of the test work and will stage the second phase of testing no later than this month in order to provide ultrasound inspections to students who need them.
According to the DSEJ's statistics, they had conducted urinary tests for six local students yesterday, all of which were not found to need any further checking.
Yesterday the subsidiaries of the Health Bureau had conducted urinary tests for 102 walk-in students, of which four students needed to be transferred to hospital for further checking.
The hotline of the Disease Prevention Control Centre (DPCC) also recorded 31 inquiries from citizens. Of the 31, 26 citizens that inquired about the urinary test of the milk program, three asked about the diary products while the remaining two were complaints and other queries.
The urinary test for the milk program student has been staged since September 22.
The spokesperson of the Conde de Sao Januario Central Hospital said that the urinary test was considered the quickest way to obtain milk program students' health conditions; the Health Bureau would stage the second stage of the inspection by synthesising the appraisal of the works in the first phase.
“The urinary test might not be an absolutely correct result, it might also have a chance to be diagnosed wrongly,” said the spokesperson, adding that of the three girls who were diagnosed with small kidney stones, two found abnormal results in the urinary test.
Citizens with questions can call the DPCC’s hotline on +853 2856 1122, which is also available during holidays.
