    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 Tuesday's Backchat: Covid-19 updates; and transitional housing.

    A new survey by the Society of Hospital Pharmacists suggests that nearly half of unvaccinated Hongkongers say they won’t be getting inoculated against the coronavirus. Of the more than 5,600 respondents to the online survey, 47 percent of those who'd not been vaccinated said they wouldn't be getting the jabs, while 27 percent were undecided. 

    The results have come after Hong Kong reached its goal late last month of having 70 percent of the eligible population receive at least one Covid-19 shot. 

    Meanwhile, another airline - Swiss International Air Lines - has suspended flights to Hong Kong over the strict quarantine regime in force here.

    From 9:15am, we’re talking about transitional housing – is this a way to relieve housing problems?
