    Resuming local tourism

    On today’s Backchat: As Hong Kong takes its first tentative step towards resuming tourism, we’ll be asking if the government decision to allow local tour groups of up to 30 people from today is enough to save Hong Kong’s travel industry from collapse?

    The local tour groups will be subject to all kinds of restrictions, with tour guides required to take mandatory COVID-19 tests and all participants required to wear identifying labels at all times.

    So would you consider signing up for a local tour under these rules? Would it feel strange to travel around Hong Kong with a guide? And what kind of local tours are most likely to be successful?

    Covid-19 / #BridgetheGap Charity

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Ada Wong

    On Tuesday's Backchat, Covid19.
    The leader of a team of mainland medical experts, who are in Hong Kong to help tackle the coronavirus situation here, says he hopes they can help expand the city’s testing capability to more than 200,000 people a day. The government has dismissed as rumours that a mainland medical team is in Hong Kong to collect people's DNA. On Monday, Hong Kong recorded 80 confirmed cases in a day - the first time in two weeks the number is less than 100. How are we doing? What will Mainlanders do here? Is widespread testing important?

    From 9:15-9:30, a charitable initiative that encourages the public to donate the $10,000 they received from the government to help the needy.
