Interview with Tong Wong of OGCIO on Leave Home Safe mobile app & Bishop Hill Reservoir

As we enter a second year under the shadow of the Covid-19 pandemic, many countries are seeing infection surges and mounting deaths. A key element in countering the spread of the virus is contact tracing to identify the source of infections following the discovery of a coronavirus patient. A wide range of digital tools have been developed for this purpose by governments, businesses and even ordinary citizens. But as with many new technologies, the first and foremost concern for some is data security and privacy. To talk about the Leave Home Safe mobile application is Tony Wong, Deputy Government Chief Information Officer.

Wo Chai Hill, also known as Bishop Hill, is a small hill in Shek Kip Mei. The site covers one of several underground service reservoirs in Kowloon. For local residents, it’s also a rare urban green recreational space. Shortly before the end of last year, as demolition work on one underground reservoir started, a century-old 4,300 square metre gem came to light. And it wasn’t government officials or government experts that came to the rescue.

The Pulse

RTHK's English-language current affairs programme that takes "The Pulse" of Hong Kong ... and the world around it.

"The Pulse" is presented by locally and internationally known journalist and writer Steve Vines.

Its focus? The latest events and trends that affect Hong Kong - from the corridors of power and business boardrooms, to the streets and dai pai dongs.

"The Pulse" is politics. What's happening in the Legislative Council and on the streets right now.

"The Pulse" is the media, informing us how well or badly our press and broadcast organisations diagnose and reflect the society around us.

"The Pulse" is insightful, in-depth reports and interviews on current issues - examining those issues in depth, looking behind and beyond the news.

Its focus is on the timely. The Now.

Keep your eye ... and your finger ... on "The Pulse".

If you want to discuss anything you've seen in "The Pulse", or anything in the public eye right now, or just to talk about the show, why not join in the debate on our Facebook page, RTHK's The Pulse.
