    On Wednesday’s Backchat: schooling and learning amid Covid-19.

    The Education Bureau says primary schools can apply to resume full-day classes only if the vaccination rate of both teachers and students reaches 70 percent.

    Children aged five to 11 can now receive the Sinovac jab, or choose to take the BioNTech vaccine from February 16.  

    Both primary and secondary schools have suspended face-to-face classes until after the Lunar New Year. Students are forced to stay at home as extra-curricular lessons are also moved online owing to the social distancing measures.

    Meanwhile, a concern group says the situation for special educational needs students has worsened during the current fifth wave of the pandemic, and has urged the Financial Secretary, Paul Chan, to increase assistance for these children from grassroots families.

    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.
