More HZMB private car quotas set

The governments of Hong Kong and Macau have agreed to increase the regular quotas for Hong Kong cross-boundary non-commercial private cars using the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge to Macau, the Transport Department announced today.   The decision was made to enhance traffic flow between Hong Kong and Macau, better utilising the bridge, the department said.   It will increase the Hong Kong quota by 1,000, following the earlier quota allocation of 1,800 for Hong Kong.   The additional quota will be distributed in two phases from the second quarter.   Half of the additional 1,000 quota allocations is for company applicants and the other half is for individual applicants. The quotas are valid for no more than three years. The eligibility criteria of quota applications remains the same.   Private cars allocated with Hong Kong quotas will be permitted to access the city of Macau multiple times using the bridge.   The Hong Kong quota allotments will be re-allocated upon expiry thro

Vaccination case reported

The Department of Health said as of 4pm today, in the past 24 hours it received one report from the Hospital Authority of a death case with suspected serious adverse event following COVID-19 vaccination.   The case involved a 57-year-old man with a history of hypertension, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and obesity. He was found unconscious on the street at around midnight of May 2.   He was admitted to Pok Oi Hospital's accident and emergency department and passed away this morning.   The man had received a dose of the Sinovac vaccine at a community vaccination centre on April 26 and there was no record of him feeling unwell during observation there.   The department has contacted the authority to obtain further information and will pass the case to the Expert Committee on Clinical Events Assessment Following COVID-19 Immunisation for causality assessment.   So far, there is no clinical evidence to indicate that the event was caused by the vaccine, it added.
