    Serious flu cases in children and adults / Parkour stunts

    On Wednesday's Backchat, we're talking about serious flu cases and calls for citizens to be vaccinated.

    The medical sector is urging members of the public to get their flu jabs after an eight-year-old unvaccinated girl, infected with the influenza A virus, died last week.
    A six-year-old girl is also seriously ill in hospital.
    Figures show 36 people died of flu-related complications during a 10-day period earlier this month. It's believed immunity levels may have been affected by a relative lack of exposure to viruses over the past four years, because of anti-Covid precautions.
    So has flu become more serious than Covid? We'll be talking to medical experts.
    After 9:45, we turn our attention to the activity known as parkour, with a video circulating online showing a young man apparently leaping from one MTR platform to another, prompting authorities to launch an investigation into potential breaches of MTR by-laws.

    Is it time to review the HK$2 transport subsidy? / Findings on the side effects of antiviral medicine

    主持人:Brian Wong and Ada Wong

    On Friday’s Backchat, we’re talking about the HK$2 subsidised fare for elderly people who use public transport, after some lawmakers called for it to be doubled, to help keep the concessionary scheme sustainable.

    Latest government estimates show that the policy would cost HK$6 billion in the coming financial year, up 50 percent from this year.
    The administration said earlier that it would review the scheme.
    So what do you think? Should the HK$2 fare be doubled? Or should public transport operators subsidise part of the elderly fares? And how can we ensure that the concessionary scheme is sustainable when the population is ageing?
    After 9:45am, we’ll find out more about a Chinese University study on the side effects of antiviral medicine.
