The Prince of Wales Hospital on Thursday said materials containing asbestos have been found in a ventilation shaft during a renovation project at its Special Block. Officials said the entire floor where the cancer-causing material was discovered has been sealed off. But they said the asbestos is a low-risk type and it was in a stable condition so it does not pose a health hazard. The hospital said experts have carried out tests to make sure the area is not contaminated. Priscilla Ng asked the Medical Association's Dr Leung Chi-chiu if he was concerned about the discovery.
