The voter registration campaign for the 2021 Rural Representative Election opened today.   Those eligible should sign up by July 16, the Home Affairs Department said.   There are three types of rural representatives - Indigenous Inhabitant Representatives, Resident Representatives and Kaifong Representatives.   Indigenous Inhabitant Representatives are returned by indigenous inhabitants, their spouses or surviving spouses of an indigenous or composite indigenous village.   They reflect indigenous inhabitants’ views on village affairs, and deal with affairs relating to indigenous inhabitants’ lawful traditional rights and interests and the traditional way of life.   Resident Representatives are returned by both indigenous and non-indigenous inhabitants living in an existing village. They reflect views on village affairs on behalf of the residents.   Kaifong Representatives, returned by Cheung Chau or Peng Chau residents, reflect residents’ views on the two market towns’ affa


Vaccination cases assessed

The Expert Committee on Clinical Events Assessment Following COVID-19 Immunisation assessed four death cases with history of vaccination during its meeting today.   Between April 5 and 18, the Department of Health received four death reports with history of COVID-19 immunisation from the Hospital Authority (HA).   The cases involve four men aged between 54 and 92. Based on the preliminary autopsy findings, the committee considered there was no evidence to indicate an association between the deceased's outcome and vaccination.   The first case involved a 92-year-old man who had hypertension, ischaemic heart disease, atrial flutter, ischaemic stroke, hyperlipidaemia and renal impairment.   He passed away on April 5 and had received a dose of Sinovac 18 days before his death.   Based on the preliminary autopsy findings, the death was due to left haemothorax and ruptured dissecting aneurysm of the aorta.   The second case involved a 58-year-old man who was a chronic smoker. He passed away on April 8 and had received a dose of Sinovac 23 days before his death. The autopsy findings revealed that he died of coronary artery disease.    The third case involved a 72-year-old man who had a history of chronic renal failure and was on regular haemodialysis. During a haemodialysis hospital visit on April 16, he suddenly went into cardiac arrest and passed away.    He received a dose of Sinovac 23 days before his death. Provisional causes of death were haemodialysis catheter related sepsis and hyperkalaemia.   The last case involved a 54-year-old man who was a smoker. He passed away on April 18 and he received a dose of Sinovac 16 days before his death.   Based on the preliminary autopsy findings of hypertensive heart disease, the committee considered that there was no evidence indicating an association between the deceased's outcome and vaccination, adding that a full autopsy report was required in order to conclude the causality assessment.   In addition, the committee conducted a causality assessment of two pregnant women. Both aged 32, they received treatment in the HA due to miscarriage and fetal death.    After reviewing the relevant clinical information and pathology results, the committee concluded that there was no evidence indicating an association with vaccination and noted that the concerned hospital would further investigate the cause of the fetal death.

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.
