On Monday’s Covid Update – health officials have again sought to reassure the public that Hong Kong's Covid situation won't return to anything like the peak of the fifth wave in late February and early March. 

That's despite the daily caseload remmaining above 1,000 for a fifth consecutive day. Dr Albert Au, from the Centre for Health Protection, told the media yesterday that there was no evidence point to an exponential increase in cases. 

Covid Update

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, or give us a call on 2338 8266.
