On Friday's Backchat, do we need a lockdown? According to some estimates, a third of the world's population is on some sort of lockdown, with highly restricted movement, and most shops and restaurants shut. Should we be doing the same here, or are current measures sufficient, given the small number of people who take part in risky behaviour?
Should the government make it mandatory to stop people from going out or should the public do it voluntarily?
Let us know your thoughts. You can leave a message on our Facebook page Backchat on RTHK Radio 3, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or give us a call on 23388266.
