Public dental services in Hong Kong / Parkour accident


Public dental services in Hong Kong / Parkour accident

 On Wednesday’s Backchat we will look at public dental services in Hong Kong, after long queues of people were spotted in recent weeks waiting outside government clinics well before they open. 

Some resorted to lining up overnight to ensure they get a spot. This comes after the daily quota for public dental clinics was cut by half at the start of the yearbecause of the covid pandemic. So what’s the impact been? Are the elderly and the less well-off disproportionately affected? And with the shortage of dentists expected to remain in the short to medium term, what can be done to improve the situation?

After 0915 we will look at a tragic parkour accident that claimed the life of a teenager in Tsim Sha Tsui.
