Covid-19 in the Philippines; European Super League


Covid-19 in the Philippines; European Super League

On Wednesday’s Backchat, Covid-19 in the Philippines; and the new European Super League.

The Hong Kong Employers of Overseas Domestic Helpers Association says the government's two-week ban on arrivals from the Philippines has come as a relief to many people who are concerned about the Covid-19 situation in the country.

The discovery of a mutant strain of the virus in the community in Hong Kong has led to the SAR government banning flights from the Philippines, India and Pakistan. The government says multiple arrivals from the three countries have also had the same mutated form of the virus.

How will the ban affect domestic helpers and employers in Hong Kong? Should vaccinated helpers be allowed to travel? What is significant about the new strain? How are India and the Philippines doing against Covid?

From 9:15am-9:30am, we’ll be discussing the new European Super League controversy. Would it be good news for fans in Asia?
