    Covid-19: Out of Control?

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Ada Wong

    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.
