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

Mar exports value up 26.4%

The value of Hong Kong’s total exports increased to $409.1 billion in March, up 26.4% on the same month last year, the Census & Statistics Department announced today.   The value of imports of goods increased 21.7% to $436.1 billion for the same period.   A trade deficit of $27 billion, or 6.2% of the value of imports, was recorded for the month.   Comparing the first quarter this year with the preceding quarter on a seasonally adjusted basis, the value of exports rose 19.4%, while that of imports increased 13.8%.   The value of exports continued to have strong growth on a year-on-year basis in March on the back of a sharp rebound in global demand. Exports to many major markets, notably the Mainland, registered visible increases, the Government said.   For the first quarter as a whole, total merchandise trade value surpassed the previous first-quarter high in 2018 by 13.2%, it added.
