MSF COVID-19 webinar

The number of COVID-19 cases continue to escalate in Hong Kong. All of us feel the impact in our daily lives including the stress and uncertainties brought on by this current outbreak. In the fast-changing situation, we are dealing with a lot of anxiety and stress while taking care of family members and ourselves, as well as feeling overwhelmed by the overload of information. In view of this, MSF Hong Kong organised two sessions of Cantonese and English webinar.

In this webinar, our team, which includes a doctor and a nurse, will discuss COVID-19-related medical facts, and clear up some of the most prevalent misunderstandings, such as: Why did I test positive even though I had no symptoms, whereas the other individual who had symptoms tested negative? Is it possible for the virus to spread throughout the incubation period? Would vaccination have an impact on the results of the rapid antigen test? At the same time, we recognize that the rapidly evolving situation may cause you anxiety and concern. Our professional psychologist will share and demonstrate stress and anxiety coping tips.
