    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.

    Rise in food prices / food security

    主持人:Jim Gould & Anna Fenton

    On Wednesday’s Rise in food prices. 

    Chief Executive Carrie Lam on Tuesday announced Hong Kong's toughest social distancing rules to date, including a ban on private gatherings of more than two families.
    Public gatherings will be capped at two people. Hair salons and religious venues will be closed temporarily, at least until a new “vaccine pass” scheme that will be launched later this month. 
    Starting from February 24, people will have to be vaccinated if they want to go into shopping malls, supermarkets, restaurants, gyms and churches. The “vaccine pass” will not be required on public transport yet, but authorities could order public transport to be covered if the Covid situation becomes more serious.
    Meanwhile, vegetable prices in Hong Kong have continued to skyrocket due to transport disruptions at the mainland Chinese border caused by Covid infections among truck drivers. The Consumer Council warned that we might have to suffer in the next few months with further inflation on different kinds of daily goods.
    At about 9.25am, we’ll be joined by RTHK sports reporter Atom Cheung for the latest news of the Bejing Winter Olympics.
