The government of Hong Kong paid out a substantial amount of compensation following a death related to the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine.

Hong Kong’s Food and Health Bureau recently approved a payout of HK$2 million ($255,000) for a vaccine-related death case. The amount formed part of a HK$1 billion ($127.5 million) indemnity fund established to compensate individuals who suffer from adverse events following COVID-19 vaccination.

According to the Hong Kong Free Press, the HK$2 million ($255,000) payout was not the only amount shelled out to compensate victims of vaccine damage. As of April 23, it had already paid out a total of HK$31.5 million ($4.02 million) for 241 cases of vaccine injury.

The HK$2 million ($255,000) payout applies if the deceased was aged 40 and older. Individuals aged younger than 40 could receive a bigger payout of HK$2.5 million ($318,750).

An official vaccine safety monitoring report published in December 2021 elaborated on the vaccine case. It involved a 66-year-old woman who passed away 16 days after receiving her first doses of the BNT162b2 mRNA vaccine in July of that year.

A resulting autopsy found that she died of myocarditis or heart muscle inflammation. The city-state’s Expert Committee on Clinical Events Assessment Following COVID-19 Immunization subsequently concluded that there was an “intermediate” relationship between the COVID-19 vaccine and her death. Following this finding, the Hong Kong government approved the payout.

Dr. Ivan Hung Fan-ngai, the expert committee’s co-convener, explained in an interview that the woman had no long-term illness. He added that her autopsy report indicated the presence of the parvovirus B19 pathogen in her body – which can cause myocarditis – for a period of time. Nevertheless, Hung remarked that the relationship between the condition and vaccination cannot be completely ruled out in the woman’s case.

The Epoch Times reported that as of May 15, about 17 million vaccine doses were administered in Hong Kong. The special administrative region’s health department received 7,484 reports of post-vaccination events, with 103 deaths occurring within two weeks after COVID-19 vaccination. (Related: The Vaccine Death Report reveals that MILLIONS of people have died from covid vaccines.)
