The 35-year-old Dr. Guan was revealed on Monday and died of suspected injection of unknown fluid in the ward of Pok Oi Hospital.

After former Legislative Council member Zheng Songtai disclosed his suicide note, "Stance News" quoted information as saying that the incident mentioned in the suicide note involved a brain surgery in Tuen Mun Hospital in July this year. Arguing with Dr. Guan, the report also claimed that Dr. Guan had attempted suicide before he was sent to Pok Oi Hospital, but the hospital did not raise its vigilance.
