Topics (1)：Useful Knowledge on Resilience and Psychological Health under the Pandemic
From school closures for primary and secondary school students, to alternative work arrangements and adverse circumstances such as work from home, leave, and even unemployment, COVID-19 has seemingly wreaked havoc in the daily lives of people from different backgrounds. The Department of Psychology of The Education University of Hong Kong has conducted a series of population-representative studies to show that disruption to daily routines is an important factor that causes psychological distress and is often associated with the development of anxiety and depression. Based on the evidence, the research team makes some recommendations for all walks of life to help enhance their mental health and well-being.
Topics (2)：Tackling COVID-19 Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic has been estimated to cause over 15 million deaths worldwide, and has led to severe socioeconomic disruptions. Vaccines and antivirals substantially reduce morbidity and mortality. However, there is a continuous threat from novel variants. Research on the characteristics of emerging variants and the development of innovative therapeutics and vaccination are pivotal in minimizing the impact of COVID-19. The Department of Microbiology at the University of Hong Kong has conducted research on this and will discuss the way forward.
