    On Wednesday's Backchat: A tightening quarantine rules; and a new HK airport logistics park in Dongguan.

    Hong Kong is going to scrap most quarantine exemptions, following discussions with mainland health experts aimed at securing a full reopening of the border.

    Details have not been announced yet but Carrie Lam said exemptions will only be granted to people providing emergency services or daily necessities to Hong Kong.

    In addition to that, patients who have recovered from Covid-19 and are ready to be discharged from hospital will need to spend an additional two weeks in quarantine at the North Lantau Hospital.

    The government’s Covid-19 expert panel is in discussion on whether booster shots should be given, while Chinese drug maker Sinovac has applied to Hong Kong health authorities to allow children as young as three to receive its Covid jabs.

    After 9.15am, we’ll be talking about a new logistics park in Dongguan that will be set up by the Hong Kong Airport Authority.

    US elections; Animal cruelty

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Ada Wong

    On Tuesday's Backchat, US elections, and animal abuse.
    Some of the United States' biggest and closest allies quickly congratulated Democrat Joe Biden on Saturday, recognising his presidential election victory even though Donald Trump, with whom several have had rocky relations, had yet to concede.
    Meanwhile, In his unsuccessful campaign for re-election, US President Donald Trump repeatedly warned that a victory for Joe Biden would be a win for China and that Beijing would "own America"; Was he right?
    What are the implications for Sino-US relations, and for us in Hong Kong? Will Biden
    treat the city differently?
    From 9:15-9:30 we'll be discussing animal abuse following four recent cases including dogs, a cat and a wild boar.
