Two vaccination cases reported

The Department of Health today announced that it received two reports from the Hospital Authority of death cases with suspected serious adverse events following COVID-19 vaccination.   One of the cases involves a 58-year-old woman with a history of hypertension and obesity.   She was found collapsed at home on April 22 and was admitted to the United Christian Hospital for treatment. Investigation in the hospital revealed extensive subarachnoid haemorrhage with brain oedema.   Her condition deteriorated and she passed away in the early morning of April 23. Provisional diagnosis was subarachnoid haemorrhage and cardiac arrest.   The woman received her second dose of the Sinovac vaccine at the Kowloon Bay Sports Centre Community Vaccination Centre on April 13 where there was no record of her feeling unwell during observation.   So far, there is no clinical evidence to indicate that the event was caused by the vaccine. The authority has referred the case to the coroner.   The department 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.   The second case involves a 75-year-old man with a history of hypertension and diabetes.   He was found unconscious at home this morning and was admitted to Tseung Kwan O Hospital’s accident and emergency department. Resuscitation failed and he passed away.   The man received his second dose of the Sinovac vaccine on April 9.   The department will also pass the case to the expert committee for causality assessment.

Where is Hong Kong?

Positioned at the mouth of the Pearl River Delta on the coast of southern China, Hong Kong’s geographical position as a gateway between the East and West has made it an attractive centre for international trade. As a reflection of this, the heart of Asia’s world city has always been the bustling and beautiful Victoria Harbour. Hong Kong’s 1,104-square-kilometer area comprises Hong Kong Island, which lies to the south of the harbour, the Kowloon Peninsula, which forms its northern shores, the New Territories to the north of Kowloon, which stretch all the way to Mainland China, and more than 200 outlying islands, including Lantau Island, where Hong Kong International Airport is located.
