    On Monday’s Backchat, the growing fifth covid wave.
    The Omicron cluster at Kwai Chung Estate has now expanded to 170 cases, with those in-fected spread across several buildings in the public housing estate.
    Two of the blocks, Yat Kwai House and Ying Kwai House, are currently under a five-day lock-down with residents forced to stay home.
    A top government adviser on the pandemic, Professor Yuen Kwok-yung warned that the “es-calating” fifth wave could take two to three months to contain, and easing social-distancing measures around the Lunar New Year holiday was impossible.
    Meanwhile, another hamster, one of 77 surrendered by residents following a cull announced last week, has tested positive for the Delta covid variant. 
    Questions have also been raised over covid transmission on public transportation, after health experts said last week that omicron could have possibly spread from one person to an-other in an MTR station within seconds.Let us know what you think.

    On Wednesday's Backchat: the Macau gaming industry; and World Aids Day.

    Macau casino shares trade here slumped on Monday after police arrested 11 people at the weekend over alleged money-laundering and illegal cross-border gambling.

    Alvin Chau, head of the Macau casino junket operator Suncity Group, has been remanded in custody in the SAR after authorities in Wenzhou, in mainland China, issued an arrest warrant for him. Such operators act as go-betweens, bringing big-spending visitors to the casinos, extending them credit and collecting interest on their debts.

    There’s also uncertainty surrounding the future of the casino sector, with gaming concessions due to expire in the middle of next year.

    From 9:15am, we’re talking more about Aids and HIV, as December 1 is World Aids Day.
