Miscarriage queries answered

The Food & Health Bureau today said there is no evidence that COVID-19 vaccination will increase the risk of miscarriage for recipients.   It made the remarks in response to media enquiries on the number of miscarriage cases involving people who have been inoculated with COVID-19 vaccines.   From April 12 to May 9, there were 396 miscarriage cases for those without a vaccination record while the number of miscarriage cases for those who had a vaccination record was nine, according to the Hospital Authority's information.   There is so far no clinical evidence the miscarriage cases were caused by vaccines, the bureau emphasised.   It added that the overall rate of miscarriage in Hong Kong is similar to that recorded in the past three years. http://dlvr.it/RzhT7m

Jordan food premises checked

The Food & Environmental Hygiene Department and Police took stringent enforcement action in the vicinity of Wai Ching Street in Jordan last night.   They inspected 13 catering premises, including six which were subjects of complaints. All the premises were not in operation.   The department said according to the current directions issued by the Secretary for Food & Health in relation to catering businesses under the Prevention & Control of Disease (Requirements and Directions) (Business & Premises) Regulation (Cap 599F), catering business operators must strictly comply with a series of requirements and restrictions.   Under the requirements and restrictions, a person responsible for carrying on a catering business must cease selling or supplying food or drink for consumption on the business premises from 6pm to 4.59am of the subsequent day. Additionally, no more than two people may be seated together at one table within any catering premises.   The poster containing the "LeaveHomeSafe" QR code must also be displayed at the entrance of the premises or at a conspicuous location.   If a person responsible for carrying on a catering business or scheduled premises contravenes the regulations, they face a maximum fine of $50,000 and six months' imprisonment.   The department said it will continue to step up enforcement action and publicity efforts and conduct joint operations with Police to ensure compliance with relevant regulations.
