On Wednesday's Backchat: Covid-19 worldwide; and typhoons.
Singapore is opening its borders to more countries for quarantine-free travel, amid a recent spike of Covid-19 infections.
Meanwhile, Australia’s largest city, Sydney, has also lifted its Covid lockdown after almost four months; while Thailand also plans to fully reopen to vaccinated tourists from ‘low-risk’ countries from November.
After 9.15am, we’re discussing typhoons while Hong Kong embraces the second T8 of the year with tropical storm Kompasu.
