Latest on Covid-19 and vaccines

On Monday’s Backchat the latest on Covid-19 and vaccines.

An infectious disease expert said on Friday that a fourth wave of Covid-19 infections has arrived in Hong Kong with a surge in untraceable cases.

The government have ordered to suspend face-to-face teaching for primary one to three students following a growing number of upper-tract respiratory infections in the campuses.

According to Health Secretary Sophia Chan, the measure is also useful to control the spread of Covid-19 as they were transmitted under similar circumstances.

How will parents cope with school closures again? When can we expect vaccines to be ready? Will the fourth wave be the last wave?
