Health fears in sub-divided flats
(05-21 15:29)

There are fresh concerns about living standards in sub-divided flats, after a study found high levels of bacteria that can make people sick.
Baptist University and the World Green Organization found a total bacterial count of more than 6,500 units per cubic metre in some flats. A satisfactory level is said to be 1,000 units per cubic meter.
Lai Ka-man, an Associate Professor at the university's Department of Biology, says much of the bacteria came from outside. --RTHK
