On Friday's Backchat, do we need a lockdown? According to some estimates, a third of the world's population is on some sort of lockdown, with highly restricted movement, and most shops and restaurants shut. Should we be doing the same here, or are current measures sufficient, given the small number of people who take part in risky behaviour?
Should the government make it mandatory to stop people from going out or should the public do it voluntarily?
Let us know your thoughts. You can leave a message on our Facebook page Backchat on RTHK Radio 3, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or give us a call on 23388266.
8:30-9:00 Benjamin Cowling, Professor and Division Head, Division of Epidemiology and Biostatistics. School of Public Health at the University of Hong Kong

This May Day, a Backchat special wants to know if you share the Lantau Tomorrow Vision.
The Government has outlined the most ambitious plan in our history to build new islands connected by road and rail, a new central business district and housing for a million people. It’s estimated to cost more than 600 billion dollars in its first stage.
Critics say it’s overpriced and unnecessary. The Government says it will instil hope among Hong Kong people for economic progress and improved livelihoods.
We’ll be hearing from Government officials, and others, and we hope from you. Come along to the special Backchat programme live in our Kowloon Tong studios at 12 noon on Wednesday 1st May, and join the debate.
