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

Govt to review entry restrictions

The Government will review whether stricter restrictions on people arriving in Hong Kong are warranted after a man who flew in from Dubai and completed a 21-day quarantine tested positive for COVID-19.   Secretary for Food & Health Prof Sophia Chan made the remarks today in response to media enquiries after attending a radio programme.   She noted that the Government had recently implemented the tightened commercial flight suspension mechanism to address the risk of importing mutant strains of COVID-19 from very high-risk places.   “Starting from April 14, we have already strengthened our suspension of flight mechanism. If we look at the past data, from March to now we have already suspended seven flights for 14 days from different countries.   “Therefore with this new mechanism, we envisage that we will be suspending more flights.”   Prof Chan added the Government will continue to review the situation in a timely manner.
