Two more people have died after getting the Sinovac Covid-19 jab, Hong Kong health authorities revealed on Saturday night

In total, six people have died locally after receiving the [Chinese] mainland-made Sinovac shots, although experts concluded there were no direct links to the jabs in the first two deaths and they were still looking into the other cases.

One of the latest deaths was of an 80-year-old man who had diabetes and hypertension and had suffered a stroke. He died of ischemic bowel disease, the authorities said. The other case involved a 67-year-old man, who also had diabetes, hypertension and hyperlipidemia. Another 63-year-old man with heart and liver problems was in a critical condition on Saturday. He suffered a stroke.
