The suspension of most of the non-emergency services at public hospitals during the COVID-19 outbreak is a source of worries to senior citizens with chronic illnesses, as they have not been able to attend scheduled medical appointments. A recent survey by Lingnan University (LU) reveals that over 60 per cent of senior citizens are willing or very willing to try online medical consultations when the relevant technology is fully developed.
