Hong Kong began a three-day voluntary mass coronavirus testing exercise on Friday amid a fifth wave of infections, but resistance and challenges had already surfaced.⁠

Some among the elderly lamented it as pointless since they were “dying anyway”, while a community group said it expected many to not know how to make a report online should they test positive for Covid-19.⁠

In the lead-up to the three-day exercise that started on Friday, the Society for Community Organisation reached out to thousands of seniors and taught them how to use rapid antigen test (RAT) kits. WhatsApp videos were also put together for the more tech-savvy ones to view on their smartphones.⁠

However, reception among the elderly has been mixed.⁠

Sze Lai-shan, the organisation’s deputy director, said the government’s self-reporting platform could be a stumbling block for elderly people unfamiliar with technology.⁠
