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

Vaccination cases assessed

The Expert Committee on Clinical Events Assessment Following COVID-19 Immunisation assessed three death cases with history of vaccination during its meeting today.       As of April 4, the Department of Health received a total of 15 death reports with history of COVID-19 immunisation from the Hospital Authority.   The cases involve 11 men and four women aged between 55 and 80. Existing information indicates that most of these cases died of cardiovascular diseases.   Three of the cases were assessed in today's meeting.   The first case involves a 67-year-old man who passed away on March 13. The full autopsy report indicated that the patient died of acute myocardial infarction due to coronary atherosclerosis, while other investigations did not reveal possible immunological reactions due to a vaccine.   The committee considered that there was no causal relationship between the deceased's outcome and COVID-19 vaccination.   The second case involves a 68-year-old woman with hypertension, hypothyroidism and lipid disorder who passed away on March 29 and received a dose of CoronaVac 26 days before her death.   Based on the preliminary autopsy findings of acute myocardial infarction, the committee considered that the deceased's outcome was not directly associated with COVID-19 vaccination.   The last case involves a 62-year-old man with a history of newly diagnosed hypertension who passed away on April 2 and received a dose of CoronaVac 25 days prior to his death. The causality assessment will be conducted when preliminary autopsy findings are available.
