AstraZeneca vaccine│increases the risk of cerebral thrombosis Xu Shuchang and Cui Junming suggest the government to purchase Johnson & Johnson

[10:00] The vaccine jointly developed by Oxford University and AstraZeneca, which Hong Kong intends to purchase, has been established by the European Medicines Agency to be related to cases of cerebral thrombosis.

Government expert Xu Shuchang and President of the Institute of Pharmacists Cui Junming respectively suggested that the government abandon or reduce the purchase of the AstraZeneca vaccine and switch to the one-dose US Johnson & Johnson vaccine. They also pointed out that the vaccine’s protection rate against the South African variant virus was as high as 50%.

He mentioned that the cases of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis among vaccinators are concentrated in young European women. It is estimated that local women take contraceptives because the drug itself may cause blood clots.

Cui Junming pointed out that the Hong Kong government has signed an agreement with AstraZeneca earlier that it may be necessary to purchase a certain amount of vaccines. It is recommended that the government significantly reduce the number from 7.5 million doses to halve to avoid waste. "Hong Kong citizens (negative reports) are sensitive to You may not want to be vaccinated with any side effects.” I believe that the government should not only rely on the existing Kexing and Fubitai vaccines. For example, the previous Fubitai vaccine had packaging problems and could only rely on the Kexing vaccine, which is risky to the Hong Kong vaccination plan. .

New crown pneumonia | Xu Shuchang: the Philippines should be banned from arriving, but Hong Kong people have demand for foreign domestic helpers

[09:30] The fourth wave of the epidemic in Hong Kong is stable, and most of the confirmed cases are imported cases.

Government expert Xu Shuchang believes that in terms of epidemic prevention, Philippine flights should be banned from arriving in Hong Kong. However, the government needs to take into account the needs of Hong Kong people for foreign domestic helpers, and believes that the government may also consider allowing Filipino domestic helpers who have been vaccinated against the new crown to enter Hong Kong.

As for whether only vaccinated Filipino domestic helpers should be allowed to arrive in Hong Kong.

Xu Shuchang said that the virus may still infect others after the injection. "The virus is a variant virus that is so tight that it may not be covered by the injection. It is better to be beaten than not to be beaten at all."

He also believes that the Hospital Authority and residential care homes for the elderly can relax visits by vaccinators. Visitors need to undergo a quick test 14 days after the two injections, and they must wear a mask and maintain hand hygiene.

It is expected that half of the adults, at least 3 million people will receive the injection in July.
