On Tuesday's Backchat, Covid19.
The leader of a team of mainland medical experts, who are in Hong Kong to help tackle the coronavirus situation here, says he hopes they can help expand the city’s testing capability to more than 200,000 people a day. The government has dismissed as rumours that a mainland medical team is in Hong Kong to collect people's DNA. On Monday, Hong Kong recorded 80 confirmed cases in a day - the first time in two weeks the number is less than 100. How are we doing? What will Mainlanders do here? Is widespread testing important?
