Torres Ting, young son of Hong Kong actress Miriam Yeung and her husband, ex-VRF member Real Ting, has fallen ill. Since Torres started having a high fever last week, 41-year-old Miriam had been taking care of her son day and night in addition to balancing her busy work life.
It was only a matter of time before the Cantopop singer revealed on her social media two days ago (May 20) that she, too, was down with a high fever and needed to stay overnight in the hospital for observation.
During her check-up, the doctor confirmed that her respiratory system was infected with bronchitis, and that she will not recover from her fever so soon.
Accompanying the post was a photograph of her hand attached to a drip which worried many of her fans.
Miriam wanted to give her fans a peace of mind and said with a hoarse voice in a phone interview, “I want to thank everyone for their care and concern. There’s no need to worry about me. I am currently trying to bring down my fever and I apologise for making everyone worried when I disappeared for a few days. I had actually been resting.”
Thirty-five-year-old Real, who has been taking care of her, explained in his phone interview, “The doctor told us that if she had been sent to the hospital any later, she could have developed pneumonia. She is much better now. Thank you all for your concern.”
Netizens left their heartfelt and concerned messages on Miriam’s social media, saying that they are “looking forward to [her] new album” and telling her to “rest well and recover soon”.
