    On Mondays Backchat, the response to the latest anti-epidemic fund, and new woes for Prince Andrew.

    The government has announced a 3.57-billion-dollar Covid relief package, aimed at helping businesses and individuals hit by the latest social distancing restrictions that will remain in place into Chinese New Year.

    But many businesses are complaining that this isn’t nearly enough to offset the huge losses they’ll incur in this traditionally lucrative period… while lawmakers are also calling for another round of consumption vouchers for all.

    What do you think about the government package? Is it enough? Or has the administration given enough to businesses already?

    After 9.15am, we'll talk about British royal Prince Andrew, after he was stripped of military titles and royal patronages as he faces a civil sex abuse case in the United States.

    On Friday's Backchat: health code; and love scams.

    The government has unveiled details of how its health code system will work.

    It’s designed to enable those who are deemed to be of low-risk of having Covid-19 to enjoy quarantine-free travel to the mainland.

    Those interested can apply for a code from December the tenth – to familiarize themselves with the process. They’ll have to register their personal details, and upload their visit records from the LeaveHomeSafe app.

    The authorities will then use this information to determine your level of risk – giving applicants either a green, yellow or red code. Only the greens will be allowed to cross the border once its reopened.

    The government says there are no current plans to use this new health code here in Hong Kong, and that only people who want quarantine-free travel to the mainland need to apply.

    Meanwhile, with the LeaveHomeSafe app becoming mandatory at more premises from next Thursday, officials also said they are liaising with telecom firms and charity groups to give free mobile phones and telephone cards to people in need.

    What do you think? Do you have any concerns or questions about the health code system? 

    From 9:15am, we’re talking about love scams as Hong Kong records an 80% surge in cases in the first 10 months this year.
