Govt rejects UK report on HK

The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government today vehemently refuted, strongly disapproved of and firmly rejected the slandering remarks and ill-intentioned political attacks on the city under the successful application of “one country, two systems” in the so-called United Kingdom Six-monthly Report on Hong Kong: July to December 2022.   In a press statement, the Government again urged the UK to respect international law and the basic norms governing international relations and stop interfering in Hong Kong matters, which are purely China’s internal affairs.   Improved electoral system for patriots to administer HK The new electoral system has established the Legislative Council Election Committee Constituency which goes beyond the vested interests of various groups and districts, and broadened the representation in Hong Kong’s political structure in a balanced and orderly manner, thereby enhancing the city’s governance efficiency, the statement pointed out.   The sev

Vaccination case data updated

The Department of Health said that in the preceding week ending November 21, it received 42 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 died and had potential association with vaccination.   As of November 21, around 9.29 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines had been administered to the public.   The department received 6,391 reports of adverse events, 48 of which are death cases with vaccination within 14 days. The figures represented 0.07% and 0.0005% of the total vaccine doses administered. None of the death cases was associated with vaccination.   The Expert Committee on Clinical Events Assessment Following COVID-19 Immunisation concluded that 29 death cases had no causal relationship with vaccination, and preliminarily considered that 18 cases were not associated with vaccination. One case is still pending further information for assessment.   The committee also considered that there is no unusual pattern identified so far.   According to information from the authority, during the period from October 25 to November 21, the ratio of death cases out of those without a vaccination record was 122.8 cases for every 100,000 people, whereas the ratio of death cases for those with a vaccination record was 6.6 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 cases, details of which can be found here.
