Two more staff at Gucci's store in Tsim Sha Tsui have been diagnosed with measles, taking the total number of employees taken sick there to five.

The 27-year-old woman and 31-year-old man are in stable condition. The Centre for Health Protection said they had been vaccinated against the disease.

They said they didn't have contact with any measles patients during the incubation period. Yesterday, it was revealed that three staff at the store had fallen ill with measles.

The store remains closed for disinfection work, and 143 of the 195 employees have been vaccinated so far. Management at the Harbour City mall said bathrooms nearby that had been closed for disinfection were now reopened.

The two new cases take the total number in Hong Kong this year to 75. The number of cases peaked in March and April, with about half of them affecting airport workers or airline staff.
