2019 Coronavirus disease（COVID-19）is an infectious disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Since February, Hong Kong has faced a surge of infections in the community.
In response to the current outbreak, MSF has proactively approached relevant government departments and NGOs to offer our support. At the same time, we are also tackling to address the public's need for credible and useful health information during this period of information explosion. Thus, our team of doctors and public health specialists has produced a series of medical information for the general public and mental health tools to take care of your health.
Medical Information for Everyday People
MSF has compiled advice from the Centre for Health Protection and the medical field, and produced the following 3 sets of information for everyday people, to provide relevant information for people at high risk of infection.
Note: The preventive measures will change according to the development of the epidemic. MSF will update its recommendations in due course.

Caring for your mental health during the outbreak
The situation is changing rapidly day by day. You and I may feel anxious and stressed, affecting our mental health. Our psychologists designed the “How Are You?” website to share self-care tips and tools; for example, a series of free children storybooks to assist parents to deal with children’s anxiety
