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

Patrick Nip visits restricted area

Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip today visited civil servants working in different positions in the compulsory testing operation at the specified restricted area in Jordan to give them encouragement.   He also visited the command centre to learn more about how colleagues monitored the entire operation and made suitable deployment of supplies and manpower.   Mr Nip noted that about 3,000 civil servants from more than a dozen disciplined services and civilian grades departments took part in the operation.   He said: “These colleagues have worked closely together to perform different tasks, such as patrols, door visits, distribution of supplies, registration or various logistical support.   “The completion of manpower deployment on such a large scale has been completed in a very short time and this hinged on the full support of the department as well as the dedication of the civil service.”   Mr Nip also thanked the public for their co-operation which demonstrated that the community is united in the fight against the epidemic to achieve the goal of zero cases.
