On Thursday's Backchat, the 'ambush' lockdown; and banks and the NSL.
Officials on Wednesday lifted an 11-hour overnight lockdown on two streets in Yau Ma Tei after testing 330 people, finding one positive case of Covid-19.The ambush style procedure came after parts of Jordan were sealed off on the weekend. How effective is this kind of fast, limited forced testing? What's the experience of other countries?
From 9am-9:30am, we'll be discussing the response of HSBC to a cross-party committee in the UK. Are banks acting appropriately? Are they taking sides, or simply following the law?
Let us know your thoughts, you can leave a message on our Facebook, Backchat on RTHK Radio 3, email us at email@example.com or give us a call on 23388266.
