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

HK reports 5 COVID-19 cases

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating five additional COVID-19 cases, of which two are locally transmitted.   The new cases involve three men and two women aged between six and 66.   The two local cases, involving a 66-year-old man and a six-year-old boy, are epidemiologically linked with a local case. They live at Block 3 of Oi Fai House, Yau Oi Estate in Tuen Mun where a confirmed case was detected earlier this week.   Additionally, the centre detected two preliminary cases at Block 3 of Oi Fai House. They are family members residing in a unit 32.   So far, four confirmed and two preliminary positive COVID-19 cases have been detected in the same building.   In view of a confirmed case previously detected at a unit 31 and an investigation revealed that units 9 and 10 and 31 and 32 separately share a common soil pipe, the centre took into account the opinions from experts and decided to carry out more prudent infection control measures.   The Department of Health will further issue quarantine orders to all asymptomatic residents in units 10, 31 and 32 on all floors of Block 3 of Oi Fai House and transfer them to quarantine centres, whereas symptomatic residents will be sent to the hospital for treatment.   The three imported cases arrived from the Philippines, Pakistan and Indonesia.   A total of 124 cases have been recorded in the past 14 days, including 23 local ones, of which 10 have unknown infection sources.   For information and health advice on COVID-19, visit the Government's dedicated webpage.
