    Covid-19: Out of Control?

    Out of control? On Tuesday's Backchat, we'll be talking about the latest Covid-19 situation in Hong Kong. Microbiologist Yuen Kwok-yung has described the situation as "a bit out of control" as the number of cases has risen from 350 to 641 in less than a week from last Monday to the past Sunday.

    The Hospital Authority is also arranging an additional 400 beds for isolation. Can Hong Kong cope with the growing number of confirmed cases? How useful are the measures suggested by the government last week? Should people with mild symptoms recover at home or in hospital?

    Let us know your thoughts. You can leave a message on our Facebook page Backchat on RTHK Radio 3, email us at backchat@rthk.hk, or give us a call on 23388266.

    Backchat - Outlook for tertiary education

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Danny Gittings

    On Friday's Backchat, the outlook for tertiary education. The government is withdrawing its funding request for building medical teaching facilities at the University of Hong Kong and Chinese University, and for allied health services training facilities at Polytechnic University. As the universities and students have been at the epicenter of protests, what does the future look like? Should they change their ways? Will they still be attractive to foreign students and what do employers make of students?
