On Friday's Backchat, we look at what‘s to become of Hong Kong’s Covid isolation facilities.
It’s understood that the government will assess all available Covid isolation and treatment facilities and explore the possibility of converting them into transitional housing.
According to local media reports, facilities with private washrooms will be first in line — making the Kai Tak Community isolation facility a likely choice.
The idea was welcomed by housing concern groups, but others are worried about its possible impact on tourism and the development of the Kai Tak area into a business and sports hub.
After 9:15, we’ll look at how a million year old skull found on the mainland provides insight in human evolutionary.

On Monday's Backchat: working remotely.
Nine out of 10 employees in Hong Kong have said they would prefer working entirely or mostly from home. That was one of the findings of large-scale international survey by the accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers.
However, only 45 percent of local staff have been offered the chance of splitting their working time between the office and home.
PwC Surveyed 1,043 employees across the city in March, and also found that although Hong Kongers are keen to acquire advanced technology skills, some companies are falling behind in providing digital training.
After 9.15am, we’ll look at the government’s effort to create a cleaner city, with a three-month operation tackling problems like rodent infestation, illegal waste dumping and dripping air conditioners.
