本港增源頭不明初步確診本地個案 患者機場貨站工作



本港新型肺炎本地「零確診」多日之後,新增一宗源頭不明初步確診本地個案。涉及一名48歲男子,確認帶有L452R變種病毒株。他居住的沙田大圍金獅花園第一期金輝閣,下午7時起被列為「受限區域」,受檢人士要留在處所並接受強制檢測。

這名男子並無病徵,在機場擔任貨站服務員,他要每星期檢測,上月29日的檢測結果呈陰性,本月6日提交的樣本初步陽性。他主要在機場超級一號貨站工作,最後在今日上班。他近期沒有外遊,並分別在6月及7月,在香港接種兩劑科興疫苗。

機場及病人在潛伏期到訪過的地點,須納入強制檢測公告。病人的密切接觸者要到檢疫中心進行21日隔離,他的家居接觸者亦要到檢疫中心進行最少3日隔離檢疫,待檢測呈陰性,以及密切接觸者在檢疫中心的第一次檢測結果為陰性,才可離開檢疫中心。

San Francisco to ease indoor mask mandate


San Francisco is planning to relax its mask mandates next week. Mask requirements for many indoor gatherings of less than 100 people will be lifted, including at offices and gyms, for those fully vaccinated. And people will no longer be required to mask up at smaller college and religious gatherings as long as they meet the requirement.
"I'm excited that we're once again at a place where we can begin easing the mask requirements," Mayor London Breed said in a written statement. Breed added that it's the direct result of the fact that the city has one of the highest vaccination rates in the country.
"Our cases have fallen, and our residents have done their part to keep themselves and those around them safe," Breed wrote.
The city said when gathering unmasked, indoor venues must be properly ventilated. The Department of Public Health said the easing of masking rules could be suspended if hospitalization rates start to go up again.

Woman who died after J&J vaccine was opposed to vaccinations


A 37-year-old woman died Sept. 7 from a rare and severe condition causing blood clots that has been linked to the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Jessica Berg Wilson, a mother of two, was opposed to COVID-19 vaccinations, according to her obituary. During the last weeks of her life, “the world turned dark with heavy-handed vaccine mandates,” it reads. “Local and state governments were determined to strip away her right to consult her wisdom and enjoy her freedom.”

機場貨站一名男子確診 帶有變種病毒感染源頭不明



本港新增兩宗新型肺炎確診,其中一宗屬源頭不明本地個案,打破約50日本地「零確診」紀錄。

患者是一名48歲男子,已接種疫苗,帶L452R變種病毒株,感染源頭不明。患者於機場超級一號貨站工作,主要是返夜班,負責卸貨及檢查貨物工作,有時要進入貨機內工作,機組人員有機會在同一空間,但患者沒有機會直接接觸他們。

患者定期檢測時呈陽性,當時沒有病徵,入院後開始有喉嚨痛,病毒量開始上升。工作期間有時會在休息室進食及休息,他曾逗留的地方涉及的90人需要送檢。至於患者居住的大圍金獅花園第一期金輝閣被列為受限區強檢,沒有確診個案。

患者的5歲女兒曾上興趣班,她及另一名同學有病徵,檢測後對新冠病毒呈陰性,但對人類呼吸道合胞病毒呈陽性,就讀的東華三院馬陳景霞幼稚園需要停課3日,同班同學要短暫檢疫。

至於一宗輸入個案,是29歲由英國抵港的男子。

瑞典和丹麥以心肌炎風險為由暫停向年輕人提供Moderna疫苗



瑞典衛生部門周三以新數據顯示心肌炎風險上升為由決定暫停向30歲及以下人群提供Moderna疫苗。丹麥將停止向未滿18歲的年輕人提供該疫苗。

Moderna股價在紐約交易時段一度下跌5.3%。

「我們正在密切監測局勢,並迅速採取行動,以確保Covid-19疫苗在提供防護的同時儘可能安全,」 瑞典首席流行病學家Anders Tegnell表示。

瑞典和丹麥建議使用輝瑞公司和BioNTech SE的疫苗來替代Moderna疫苗。兩種疫苗均使用信使RNA技術來引發免疫反應。

瑞典公共衛生監督機構表示,北歐地區的一項新的初步分析表明,使用Moderna疫苗與心肌炎之間的關係最為明顯,尤其是在第二劑疫苗之後。該機構稱,發生心肌炎的較高風險階段是在疫苗注射後四周內,通常在頭兩周。

意大利羅馬有示威 反對政府強制僱員須獲新冠健康證明



意大利首都羅馬有民眾示威,反對政府要求所有僱員,必須取得新冠綠色通行證,證明已接種新冠疫苗、病毒檢測呈陰性,或從染疫後康復。

大約1萬人在市內聚集,高叫口號,抗議當局實施新防疫措施,部分人試圖突破警方防線,前往總理德拉吉的辦公室,防暴警察以水砲及催淚氣體驅散。

德拉吉譴責暴力事件,強調政府仍致力完成疫苗接種計劃。

在新規定下,從本月15日起,僱員若果未能出示有效證明,將會被停職,期間不獲支薪,但不會被解僱。反對人士認為,新措施踐踏自由,強迫民眾打針。

南韓新增1297宗確診 連續三日低於1300宗



南韓新增1297宗新型肺炎確診病例,累計超過33萬2千宗確診,新增確診個案大部分屬社區感染,超過七成來自首都圈。新增8宗死亡病例,累計2583名患者死亡。

韓聯社報道,南韓新增病例連續三日低於2千宗,時隔70日再降至1300宗以下,相信是由於檢測量較少,難以確認疫情受控,加上南韓踏入長假期,人員流動頻繁,疫情隨時可能進一步擴散。

A Covid-19 vaccine mandate won't force staff at this rural Missouri hospital to get the shot, CEO says. It will make them quit



Dr. Randy Tobler, CEO of Scotland County Hospital in Memphis, Missouri, has struggled to retain staff during the Covid-19 pandemic, losing 10 of his 57 nurses in the main hospital and three rural health clinics.

So Tobler can't afford to alienate any more health care workers, but he believes a Covid-19 vaccine mandate could do just that. Such a requirement won't make his unvaccinated staff get the shot, he says. It will make them quit.
"Our reality is we need staff to work. And in return for your working, we're not going to ask you to get a vaccine mandate," he told CNN. "There were people in the hospital that freely shared that if the vaccine mandate happened on our account or on anyone else's, they would not work here. That's just something they weren't going to put in their body."

That's why Tobler disagrees with the vaccine mandate announced by President Joe Biden last month that will apply to millions of health care workers across the country.
These are arguably the most crucial group of workers to have inoculated, because the vaccines would protect them and their patients, and keep the staff healthy so they can continue working. That's why they were among the first to be offered a Covid-19 vaccine.
There are indications that vaccine compliance is high among health care workers. Many professional health care associations have surveyed their members, the majority of whom have said they are already vaccinated. But despite evidence vaccines are safe and effective, some health care workers have resisted.
At Scotland County Hospital in rural northeastern Missouri, the difference is stark: Just 60% of the staff is vaccinated, according to the hospital.
Among those who are not is Sheila Balch, who works the hospital's front desk and is often the first person people see when they arrive. So far, she has decided not to get a Covid-19 vaccine, but that's not because she doesn't think the virus is a threat, she told CNN.
"I do believe Covid is terrible. I believe it's dangerous," she said. "I watch people every day. And I watch the fear in people's eyes every day ... But I do not think the government has the right to step in and mandate and tell us what we have to do."
Asked what she would do if Scotland County Hospital mandated that she get vaccinated, Balch said she'd look for another job. She doesn't want to, she added -- she cares for her patients and the people she works with.
"But at the same time, I'm not going to personally go against something that I feel very, very deeply in my soul, would hurt me," she said.

施打莫德納第三劑疫苗 遭FDA專家否決



美國食品藥物管理局(FDA)科學家周二(12 日)拒絕支持莫德納施打第三劑疫苗的申請,並且援引數據稱,接種兩劑疫苗已足以預防重症與死亡。

FDA 的科學家在網路上公布一份長達 45 頁的文件寫道:「真實世界的有效性研究表明,隨時間推移莫德納疫苗對新冠病毒有症狀感染或變種病毒 Delta 的有效性會逐漸下降,但整體而言,目前兩劑新冠疫苗已足以預防重症與死亡。」

目前 FDA 科學家們的立場似乎偏向不接種第三劑疫苗,輝瑞上月曾提出向年輕族群施打第三劑疫苗也遭拒絕,不過當局表示免疫力較弱者可施打補強保護力。

科學家們的這份報告將匯報給 FDA 疫苗和相關生物產品諮詢委員會(Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee),該委員會將在周四(14 日)舉行會議審查莫德納申請施打第三劑疫苗的提議。

FDA 委員會的評估報告可能會在下周出爐,當局會將報告送交給美國疾病管制預防中心(CDC)及疫苗諮詢委員會,讓該機構做出決定。

莫德納這次提出接種第三劑疫苗的族群是針對 65 歲以上長者、高危險感染族群、職業上有高機率接觸到病毒的 18 歲以上工作者。

莫德納上周在 FDA 公布的一份文件中強調,第三劑疫苗的副作用與第二劑疫苗相當,接種後出現嚴重不良反應的情形較少,並稱受測者施打第三劑疫苗的 29 天後,沒有出現罕見的心肌炎或心包膜炎的病例。

隨 Delta 病毒蔓延,拜登政府希望能提供給民眾更有效且更長期的保護,預防重症住院與死亡,目前多數住院病例多數是未接種疫苗民眾,不過 CDC 數據顯示,部分接種過疫苗者也會再次遭到感染,截至 9 月 20 日,有近 2 萬人接種過疫苗者因新冠病毒住院或死亡。

市場對此消息反應冷淡,截稿前,莫德納 (MRNA-US) 上漲 0.62%,每股暫報 307 美元。
