On Thursday's Backchat, quarantine. The government says there are around 350 SAR residents on board the Diamond Proncess in Yokohama and around 200 of them have said they would like to return to Hong Kong using the chartered flight arranged by the SAR government. How is the plan working out? What will happen to them here? We will also be looking at the new quick testing machine developed by the Hong Kong Polytechnics University.

On Monday's Backchat, wildlife trafficking. Hong Kong Customs recently seized more than $60million worth of elephant tusks and pangolin scales that arrived in a shipment from Africa, and over the years there have been seizures of illegal ivory and rhino horn by the authorities, that are believed to be for use in Chinese medicine or sculptures. After a record seizure in 2017 there were no prosecutions - authorities say there was insufficient evidence to support a reasonable prospect of convictio. Is Hong Kong becoming a wildlife trafficking hub, despite laws here? Should Hong Kong take it more seriously? What other measures could be done to combat wildlife trafficking? After 9.20, trade talks between Liu He and Donald Trump.
