It means that Macau has more preparation than Hong Kong

The epidemic in Macau has heated up, with a total of 71 confirmed cases. Today, the second round of nationwide nucleic acid testing is implemented.

At the same time, it adopts nucleic acid and rapid testing plans, so that it will not be caught off guard by the changes in the epidemic. Distributing regional information is far superior to Hong Kong.”

He believes that after July 1, Hong Kong should not turn back, but should move forward bravely and follow the direction of normalcy, describing July to September as a very critical time.

In terms of vaccination, children aged 3 to 5 can be vaccinated with Sinovac vaccine, but there are not many clinical data, but He thinks that he can refer to the latest article published by Chile in the academic journal "Natural Medicine", pointing out that during the local outbreak of Omicron, the Young children in the age group were given two injections of Kexing, 28 days apart. After examining the protective effect of more than one month after the two injections, it was found that among the 500,000 children, about 12,000 were infected, and it was found that the effect of preventing hospital admission was 65%. The effectiveness of preventive treatment in the intensive care unit is 69%, reflecting that the effect of preventing severe illness is quite good. Therefore, it is suggested that parents can safely let children aged 3 to 5 vaccinate the three-injection Kexing vaccine, but the relevant clinical data of Fubitai is relatively small.
