More HZMB private car quotas set

The governments of Hong Kong and Macau have agreed to increase the regular quotas for Hong Kong cross-boundary non-commercial private cars using the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge to Macau, the Transport Department announced today.   The decision was made to enhance traffic flow between Hong Kong and Macau, better utilising the bridge, the department said.   It will increase the Hong Kong quota by 1,000, following the earlier quota allocation of 1,800 for Hong Kong.   The additional quota will be distributed in two phases from the second quarter.   Half of the additional 1,000 quota allocations is for company applicants and the other half is for individual applicants. The quotas are valid for no more than three years. The eligibility criteria of quota applications remains the same.   Private cars allocated with Hong Kong quotas will be permitted to access the city of Macau multiple times using the bridge.   The Hong Kong quota allotments will be re-allocated upon expiry thro

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.
