On Wednesday's Backchat, Covid strains, and FS budget on country parks.
How concerned should we be about the variants of SARS-CoV-2? Do vaccines protect against them? Are
they more deadly, or faster spreading? How many are in Hong Kong, and is it possible to keep them out?
We'll be joined by a pathologist and a clinical microbiologist to answer your questions.
After 9, in his budget the FS proposed a half a billion dollar spend on country parks, adding
lookout points, treetop adventure and glamping sites, improving toilet facilities and picnic and
barbecue sites and revitalising some wartime relics by converting them into open museums.
And another $55 million to enhance ten popular hiking trails that have tourist potential. Where
and how would you spend the money?
