On Tuesday's Backchat, we're going to talk about mental health, especially among the elderly population during the pandemic.
Research has shown a surge in the risk of depression and anxiety among elderly people during the fifth wave of infections – about one-third of those interviewed suffered from emotional distress, showing signs of depression, anxiety or loneliness.
Meanwhile, another survey found that the level of happiness among Hong Kong residents in general had returned to the level of 2018, despite depressive symptoms being on the rise.
After 9:15, we'll be hearing more about BioNTech’s new booster shot against the dominant BA.4 and BA.5 Omicron strains.
