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

No virus case in restricted area

The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise and enforcement operation for the restricted area in Ap Lei Chau finished today with no confirmed COVID-19 cases found.   It exercised the power under the Prevention & Control of Disease (Compulsory Testing for Certain Persons) Regulation on April 23 to make a restriction-testing declaration to require people within the specified restricted area at Block 10, Yee Lai Court, South Horizons to stay in their premises and undergo compulsory testing.   The Government also issued a compulsory testing notice to those who had been present at the building for more than two hours from April 10 to 23 to undergo mandatory testing by April 25 even if they were not at the building when the declaration took effect.   Around 950 residents were tested.   The Government then checked about 260 people’s test records during the enforcement operation at the building. Nobody was found to have not undergone compulsory testing.   It also assigned staff to visit around 330 households in the building, of which about 30 households did not answer the door. Those residents are urged to contact the Government to arrange testing as soon as possible.
