Her 79-year-old husband is in a very stable condition within the same hospital.
Among the four new cases, two haven't any symptoms and therefore the other two are likely to be imported infections.

Fifty-eight of them are discharged, 48 remain in nine public hospitals, with one in critical condition, consistent with the authority.

‘Coronavirus quarantine hotel’ collapses in China : a minimum of 4 fatalities reported
The 111th case may be a 76-year-old man who had recently visited India with other port travellers, five of whom were later confirmed to be infected.
He first had diarrhoea on February 22 when he was still in India and again on day, after which he sought hospital treatment, but his upper tract test originally returned negative results. His infection was only confirmed on Sunday after his deep throat saliva sample taken the previous day tested positive for the virus.

He spent most of his time reception in Baguio Villa on port Island upon his return from India. His wife has been sent to a quarantine centre, while his domestic worker and other close contacts within the family are going to be isolated there too now.

The 112th case, a neighborhood infection with no symptoms, may be a 55-year-old man who lives in Hong Fook Court in North Point’s Bedford Gardens. he's the husband of an infected woman. His wife was confirmed as having the infection after visiting the Fook Wai Ching She Buddhist temple in North Point, where others had also been infected.

The 113th one, also believed to be a neighborhood asymptomatic infection, may be a 47-year-old domestic helper who worked for an infected woman.
Her employer, a guild member who was discharged from hospital on Sunday, is believed to possess transmitted the disease to a minimum of three others, including another domestic helper working for her, yet as her pet dog.
The Pomeranian, which has been quarantined, was believed to be the primary reported case of human-to-animal transmission.
The 114th case may be a 41-year-old British national who recently visited Japan and London. The Happy Valley resident, who lives on Blue Pool Road, took the CX250 flight from London to port on day, and later developed a runny rose, inflammatory disease and headache.
He visited work Lee Garden One on Wednesday and Thursday, and phone tracing would be extended to his colleagues. Authorities said he was likely to possess contracted the virus abroad, but have classified it as a possible local infection on a more “conservative” basis as he had spent it slow within the city after his return.
Commenting on the spike in imported infections in recent days, Dr Chuang Shuk-kwan of the Centre for Health Protection admitted matters presented a replacement challenge for the town.

“We are conscious of the worldwide situation, it’s very difficult to quarantine all travellers from everywhere within the world,” she said, adding “we would advise the general public to delay unnecessary travel”.
Earlier on Sunday, Professor Yuen Kwok-yung from the University of port (HKU), who advised the authorities on control measures against the disease, said on a pre-recorded television programme that the epidemic may not end this year as there can be more imported cases from the hemisphere in winter, whether or not matters in Asian nation and port may need improved in summer.

Chuang conceded there was a break that the disease “will stick with us”.
“At present, because the disease continues to be unaccustomed us, we try our greatest to delay the epidemic in port and therefore the spread in port to shop for time to work out whether we will have better methods to fight this disease,” she said.
“When we understand more about the route of transmission and therefore the disease’s nature, we are going to have better methods to handle it.”
Dr Linda Yu Wai-ling, the Hospital Authority’s chief manager for clinical effectiveness and technology management, said public hospitals may need to chop non-emergency services further to save lots of surgical masks and other protective gear for medical professionals on the front, as supplies might only last for a month.

“We will still procure personal protective equipment for our clinical staff and promote the suitable use of private protective equipment within the appropriate setting,” she said.
Meanwhile, HKU is arranging virus tests for the mainland affairs minister and immigration chief, after a 38-year-old woman became the primary of the Hongkongers airlifted last week from Hubei province, epicentre of the epidemic, to be diagnosed with the coronavirus.
Secretary for Constitutional and Mainland Affairs Patrick Nip Tak-kuen and Director of Immigration Erick Tsang Kwok-wai returned to port on the identical flight because the 38-year-old.
A government spokesman said Nip and Tsang were in healthiness.
