Testing records checked

The Government today completed a joint enforcement operation at Block 12 of Richland Gardens in Kowloon Bay, which was earlier included in a compulsory testing notice.   The enforcement action was conducted from around 8am to 11am by the Constitutional & Mainland Affairs Bureau together with Police and the Department of Health.   Out of the 269 people whose records were checked, three had failed to comply with the notice. They were issued with a compulsory testing order and a fixed penalty notice of $10,000. http://dlvr.it/SZ0L6k

Vaccination case data updated

The Department of Health said that in the preceding week ending June 20, it received 142 reports of adverse events following COVID-19 immunisation.   Among them, no death case was reported by the Hospital Authority involving individuals who had received vaccines within 14 days before they passed away and had potential association with vaccination.        As at 8pm on June 20, over 3.22 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines had been administered to the public.   The department received 3,747 reports of adverse events, 22 of which are death cases with vaccination within 14 days. The figures represented 0.12% and 0.0007% of the total vaccine doses administered.        As at June 20, the Expert Committee on Clinical Events Assessment Following COVID-19 Immunisation concluded that six death cases had no causal relationship with vaccination, and preliminarily considered that 15 cases were not associated with vaccination. One case was pending assessment.   The committee considered that there is no unusual pattern identified so far, and will continue to closely monitor the situation and collect data for assessment.        According to information from the authority, during the period from May 24 to June 20, the ratio of death cases out of those without a vaccination record was 60.3 cases for every 100,000 people, whereas the ratio of death cases for those with a vaccination record was 2.9 cases for every 100,000 people. The overall death rate is similar to that recorded in the past three years.   Out of those without a vaccination record, the ratio of death cases with acute stroke or acute myocardial infarction was 2.7 cases for every 100,000 people, whereas the ratio of death cases under the same category for those with a vaccination record was 0.2 cases for every 100,000 people.   Furthermore, the ratio of miscarriage cases out of those without a vaccination record was 25.9 cases for every 100,000 people, whereas the ratio of miscarriage cases for those who had a vaccination record was 5.5 cases for every 100,000 people.   Based on the statistical analysis of the above figures, there is no evidence that vaccination increases the risk of death or miscarriage for recipients.   The relevant reference statistics will be uploaded to the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme thematic website.   The majority of non-death cases of adverse events received so far are relatively minor, details of which can be found here.

124 COVID-19 cases reported

The Centre for Health Protection today said it is investigating 124 additional COVID-19 cases. More cases were detected in Kwai Chung Estate. There are also more than 70 preliminary positive cases.   Among the newly reported cases, 33 are related to Kwai Chung Estate, bringing the total number of positive and preliminary positive cases in the estate to 276.   One more positive case was found after an earlier confirmed case occurred at Glory Court, Tsuen Wan Garden, both of them live in units 5 but on two different floors. The centre has co-ordinated with related government departments and conducted an inspection today.    It was preliminarily considered that vertical transmission of virus via pipes is involved.   The centre will issue quarantine orders to residents of unit 5 on all floors of the building who resided there during the incubation period of the relevant cases and transfer them to a quarantine facility.   As it is possible that virus might be ejected from the open
