Suspected adverse case explained

An expert committee today said a suspected serious adverse event following COVID-19 vaccination did not have a direct link with the jab.   The Expert Committee on Clinical Events Assessment Following COVID-19 Immunisation made the statement after it convened an urgent meeting to assess the case.   The 63-year-old man, who received a dose of the Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine on February 26, suffered from acute shortness of breath with cough and attended Queen Elizabeth Hospital by himself in the early morning of February 28. His condition worsened rapidly and he succumbed that morning.   According to the Hospital Authority, the patient was a heavy smoker, had a history of diabetes mellitus, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, obesity and suspected ischemic heart disease.   The preliminary autopsy information revealed that he had serious coronary heart disease which led to acute myocardial infarction and pulmonary oedema, resulting in respiratory failure before passing away.   Having cons

19 COVID-19 cases detected

(To watch the full press briefing with sign language interpretation, click here.)   The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating 19 additional COVID-19 cases, all of which are locally transmitted.   The centre's Communicable Disease Branch Head Dr Chuang Shuk-kwan told a press briefing this afternoon that seven of the cases have unknown sources of infection.   Of the 12 cases linked with previous ones, one is from the Hong Kong International Airport Three-runway System construction site cluster and another works at an elderly care home run by the Salvation Army in Nam Shan Estate, Sham Shui Po.   One more staff member at the Langham Place branch of Uniqlo in Mong Kok has been confirmed infected, bringing the total number of cases there to four.   Today’s confirmed cases also include a nursing assistant at a private clinic on 16/F, 122 Queen’s Road Central. Five clinic workers who had close contact with the nursing assistant need to be quarantined.   Despite the number of new COVID-19 cases falling for a third day, Dr Chuang noted that it was too early to say the epidemic was under control.   “Although the number of confirmed cases is only 19 today, there are still seven unlinked cases in the city, and the cases live in various districts. Each patient can spread the virus to other people, so they are also sources of infection.   “I do not think the current situation is completely under control.”   For information and health advice on COVID-19, visit the Government's dedicated webpage.
