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

Tsuen Wan restricted areas set

The Government today made restriction-testing declarations for two residential buildings in Tsuen Wan as preliminary positive cases with unknown sources were detected.   The cases reside in Fu Yung Building, 1-5 Fu Yung Street and Block 4, Belvedere Garden Phase 2.   Considering that the risk of infection in these buildings may be higher, the Government decided to make the declarations after the test results were positive.   The declarations for these buildings took effect from 8pm. People in the area subject to compulsory testing will need to be tested by 1am.   They will be arranged to undergo a nucleic acid test at the temporary specimen collection stations set up there, where staff will collect samples through combined nasal and throat swabs.   The Government will arrange door-to-door specimen collection for people with impaired mobility and seniors.   It aims to finish the exercise at Fu Yung Building by about 7am tomorrow, and the one at Belvedere Garden by 7.30am.
