    On Friday's Backchat, challenges Hong Kong youth face.

    A new study suggests young people in the city generally do not have high expectations for society, but they refuse to ‘lie flat’ – a phenomenon where teenagers opt to take a break from relentless work, or just do the bare minimum to get by.

    The University of Hong Kong and the Child Development Initiative Alliance said young people they surveyed were concerned about their careers and life planning due to the pandemic and social movement, urging the government to offer more opportunities for them to climb up the ladder.

    What do Hong Kong youth need? What more can we offer?

    After 9.15am, we’ll have an overview of this year’s Food Expo which will last until next Monday.

    On Wednesday’s Covid Update, and Backchat: the latest on the pandemic; and pharmaceutical pollution in rivers.

    As Hong Kong faces a shortage of medical and isolation facilities, Chief Executive Carrie Lam unveiled plans to house infected Covid-19 patients in newly built public housing flats and hotels.

    About 3,000 flats at two new public housing estates and up to 10,000 hotel rooms will be used to isolate Covid-19 patients amid the surging fifth wave of infection. Mrs Lam also said there would be designated clinics to treat patients with milder symptoms.

    Meanwhile, Hong Kong reported 1,619 confirmed new local infections on Tuesday, with about 5,400 preliminary cases recorded.

    After 9, we'll be talking about a global study that found pollution of rivers from medicines and pharmaceutical products poses a threat to environmental and global health.

    At 9.25am, we’ll be joined by RTHK sports reporter Atom Cheung for the latest on the Beijing Winter Olympics.
