    On Friday’s Backchat, we look at allegations that doctors may have been abusing the covid vaccina-tion exemption system, and what that means for the fight against Covid.
    Police have arrested five doctors and more than twenty people who allegedly bought exemption cer-tificates from them without a proper medical consultation – for anything from hundreds to thousands of dollars.
    While these cases have yet to be litigated by the courts, there’s been a swell of condemnation against such practices… with Chief Secretary Eric Chan for one condemning doctors who place their personal interests above the social good
    How rare are cases of health care fraud in Hong Kong? How much would these fake exemption cer-tificates have affected the overall vaccination rate?
    After 9:15, we will look into how a new non-invasive kit might encourage more women to test for cer-vical cancer.

    On Thursday's Backchat: air quality; and merging schools.

    The Institute for the Environment at the University of Science and Technology has released a new mobile app that can help users analyse their personal air pollution exposure from outdoor and indoor locations, and what are described as different micro-environments.

    Called PRAISE-HK-EXP, the latest technology builds on an earlier version released three years ago, and aims to provide users with personalised real-time air quality information.

    In June this year the government unveiled its Clean Air Plan for Hong Kong 2035, setting a new target to reach the same standards of air quality as major international cities such as Tokyo and Paris in 14 years' time.

    From 9:15am, we’re talking about the drop in student numbers after the government decided to merge two schools starting next September.
