Authorities are investigating a case of suspected food poisoning after more than 90 pupils at the Tai Kok Tsui Catholic Primary School became sick following lunch at school on Wednesday.
The Centre for Health Protection (CHP) said it has so far identified 15 of the affected children—eight boys and seven girls aged 6 to 8.
The kids developed symptoms of acute gastroenteritis including diarrhea and stomach pain between three to 18 hours after lunch on campus, the CHP said.
Seven pupils have sought medical treatment but did not require hospitalisation, the CHP said, adding all affected students are in stable condition.
