Authorities in Hong Kong are also investigating whether two residents of the same high-rise tower have contracted the coronavirus from fecal matter due to a possible design flaw in the building’s piping system.
Health officials have traced at least two confirmed cases of the coronavirus to Hong Mei House in Tsing Yi, a small residential island in Hong Kong.
Parts of the building were evacuated while health officials and engineers carried out emergency checks.
Researchers have yet to confirm if the novel coronavirus can be transmitted via feces.
