New harbourfront space opens

The Development Bureau announced that the Pierside Precinct near Wan Chai Ferry Pier further opened today, providing a nostalgic harbourfront leisure space with a panoramic view of Victoria Harbour for the public.   Being the 12th harbourfront leisure space that opened since October last year, the newly opened area is located to the east of the ferry pier on a harbour site reclaimed for the construction of the Central-Wan Chai Bypass.   The bureau said under the incremental approach, a 180-metre-long promenade of the precinct opened earlier in March, followed by the opening of a further 80m in October.   With an area of about 4,600 sq m, the newly opened part has almost doubled the precinct's original space.   In contrast to the colourful cartoon style adopted at other harbourfront sites opened earlier in Western District and Wan Chai, the precinct mainly comprises simple fair-faced concrete and wooden structures.   It features a stylish touch with its clear and rectiline

Immunisation experts meet

An expert committee today reported that there are two death cases with suspected serious adverse events following COVID-19 vaccination.   The Expert Committee on Clinical Events Assessment Following COVID-19 Immunisation elaborated on the two cases after its meeting this afternoon.   The cases involve a 80-year-old woman with a history of heart-related disease and a 60-year-old man with a history of high blood pressure.   The committee's Co-convenor Dr Lee Cheuk-kwong said: “About today’s reported case of death, he is a 60-year-old gentleman who had a history of hypertension, hyperlipidemia and carotid artery disease.   “On March 23, he had chest discomfort and then, in the early morning, he was found unresponsive at home, and was resuscitated and certified dead at the accident and emergency department.   “Based on his medical history and the symptoms, we believe that there may be a high possibility that cardiovascular disease had led to his death.”   Dr Lee added that the committee needed to obtain more information and a post-mortem report to confirm the man's cause of death.   Regarding the 80-year-old woman, the committee noted that her cause of death was not directly associated with the vaccination.
