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

LeaveHomeSafe app data safe

(To watch the full press briefing with sign language interpretation, click here.)   Secretary for Food & Health Prof Sophia Chan today stressed that the LeaveHomeSafe mobile app will not send people’s data to the Government.   The Government may allow some previously closed premises to reopen and extend dine-in services at restaurants to 10pm from February 18. Patrons will also have to use the app or provide their personal information to keep a record of their whereabouts.   At a press briefing this afternoon, Prof Chan noted that some people are worried about the app’s data privacy.   “The fact is there is no issue of data privacy because the data would just be stored in the person’s phone. There is no platform that collects the data."    Prof Chan added that she is certain that the app will help prevent and control the epidemic if everyone co-operates.
