    On Friday's Backchat: The housing shortage, and a spate of invasive Group B Streptococcus cases.

    Our main topic is the new law just passed by Legco that will limit rent increases for subdivided flats to 10 percent… at the end of a two-year contract. But some lawmakers are concerned that there’s no regulation on the initial rent level.

    And Housing minister Frank Chan also raised eyebrows in the council when he acknowledged that it would take as long as 20 years to bring waiting times for public flats down to three years.

    So how is the government doing on housing for the grassroots? Is there enough short-term help for people?

    After 9.15am, we’ll be looking at dozens of people who’ve recently caught Group B Strep infections… and the role of fresh fish in the outbreak…

    On Friday's Backchat: Covd-19 jabs for teenagers; and the Election Committee subsector elections.

    Expert advisers to the government have changed their guidance on Hong Kong teenagers getting vaccinated against Covid-19, saying they need only one BioNTech jab instead of two.

    The change comes after more than 30 young people experienced inflammation of the heart as a suspected side-effect of the injection since those aged between 12 and 17 began receiving the shots in June.

    After 9:15am, we’re looking ahead to the Election Committee Subsector elections which will take place this Sunday.
