Simon Yam (任達華) was stabbed by a man during a business event at Zhongshan on 20th July 2019. He underwent a surgery in the local hospital and returned to Hong Kong on the same night. Simon was admitted into a hospital in Hong Kong Island and his wife, Qi Qi (琦琦) visited him daily. When asked about his condition upon leaving the hospital at 3pm on 22nd July, Qi Qi said: “Simon is transferred from ICU to normal ward. He is recovering well and has eaten some food in the afternoon. Thank you for the concern and please do not wait for him. He receives your blessings and is aware of your concern.”

Checking about when Simon would be discharged from the hospital, Qi Qi said: “He hopes too but it depends on the doctor’s decision. We have poor sleep for the past few days and finally feel relieved now. Simon is currently resting and hopefully he will recover soon. (How is his fingers’ injury?) The operation is smooth and I will feel elated once he returns home. Anyway, I feel happy when he transfers to a normal ward and he reports his safety to his friends personally. (Did the organisation committee provides any explanation?) I do not care about it temporarily and lack of time to read the information too, My manager is handling it and my top priority is to take care of Simon well. My family is accompanying him and please stop waiting for him, as it is too suffering.”
