At least 20 people have been stung by bees and sought medical treatment from Alice Ho Miu Ling Nethersole Hospital in Tai Po since Monday.

They have all been discharged after receiving treatment.

Eddie Yuen, from the hospital's Accident and Emergency department, said on Tuesday that it's unprecedented to have so many people stung by bees in such a short period of time.

He suspected that it's because some beehives were damaged by Severe Typhoon Mangkhut which hit Hong Kong on Sunday.
