    Covid Update



    主持人:Jim Gould and Paul Zimmerman

    With the rapid development of the latest coronavirus wave, we’re introducing a new programme to bring you the latest news on the global pandemic, and the local situation.

    Every weekday morning after the 8.30am news we're talking guests including health experts, and inviting listeners to send in questions and comments.

    Covid Update replaces the first part of Backchat, for the time being, but retains all the elements of the programme, while consolidating our coverage of the current outbreak. Backchat resumes after the nine o’clock news.

    Get in touch! You can leave a message on our Facebook page, Backchat on RTHK Radio 3, email us at backchat@rthk.hk, or give us a call on 2338 8266.

    On Thursday's Covid Update – A study by the Polytechnic University has found that one in 10 Hong Kong residents showed symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder -- PTSD -- in the first year after the onset of the pandemic.

    The researchers found that respondents who spent more time watching news related to the pandemic suffered more severe symptoms than those who spent less time doing so.

    They warned that being in a constant state of stress and not managing it could cause adverse impacts on our mood and daily lives, which may lead to further mental health problems in the long run.

    This comes as Hong Kong reported 251 new Covid infections on Wednesday, including 28 imported cases.
