麥嘉慧,科學人      有記性的免疫系統   有時候我們會用「打敗仗」來形容身體被病菌入侵而病倒了,可幸是身體會在這次敗仗中獲得免疫力。即是說,痊癒後的身體並不會再被同一種病菌入侵。接種疫苗,就如為身體的免疫系統做了一次軍事演習,讓它記住針對某病菌(抗原)的防禦 ,並刺激抗體產生,從而獲得免疫力。以後若真的有病菌試圖入侵身體時,免疫系統就可以迅速作出反應,將病菌擊退。

陳婉玲 (Elaine Chan)   很多時候,災難都是突如其來,不可預計的。在沒有心理準備及防災措施下,災難一旦發生,便會驚惶失措,加劇傷害和損失。所以,我們應有備無患,即使發生突發事故,也能減低受影響的程度及損失。如你同意上述說法,並有防災的準備,為災難預早作打算,那便恭喜你,你是一個有備災意識及計劃的人,因為有所防備,相信在遇到事故時,便能更從容不迫地應對。   今年2月,美國德克薩斯州地區受暴風雪吹襲,帶來極度嚴寒的天氣,路面結冰,道路封閉,氣溫驟降導致用電量暴增,使德克薩斯等南部州份電力不勝負荷,導致共400萬民居電力中斷接近一個月,冰凍天氣亦令供水系統大受影響,總統拜登更一度宣布德克薩斯州進入「重大災難」狀態,持續的冰凍天氣更引致超過70人死亡;市民在天寒地凍的情況下,只好使用原始的方法,生火取暖,又將冰雪融為水來煮沸飲用,以渡過嚴寒。

朱祖良   春天已臨,夏季將至,如果颱風再度吹襲,你會事先做甚麼準備?   類似的問題,香港賽馬會災難防護應變教研中心就曾經於2018年委託民意研究計劃 (2019年7月前隸屬香港大學,現隸屬香港民意研究所) 進行隨機抽樣電話調查,訪問了過千名18歲或以上的香港居民,所得數據再按香港人口統計數字加權分析。   2018年10月初,即颱風山竹吹襲香港後一個月,調查發現45%市民表示當時有在窗門上貼膠紙,18%則表示有儲備食糧。想起這些準備,今時今日的你覺不覺得要再做?抑或你不打算做任何準備? 當年,多達36%香港人就似乎沒有做任何特別準備。即使有,亦可能低估了颱風可能造成的影響。以下取自天文台關於颱風山竹的報告: 「山竹吹襲期間,本港至少有458人受傷,另有超過六萬宗的塌樹報告……多處有物件被吹倒、高空墜物及建築物受損……有大廈外牆及天台屋被強風吹倒……將軍澳有住宅單位的玻璃窗被吹毀,荔景亦有住宅單位的冷氣機被吹入室內……全港有超過四萬戶電力供應中斷……當中約13,500戶停電超過24小時……停電亦引致一些地方的食水供應受到影響……大澳、鯉魚門及沙田曾大屋村一帶因嚴重水浸,多名村民需要疏散。海水亦湧入杏花邨及將軍澳南一帶,有地下停車場被海水淹浸,多輛汽車被淹沒……本港海陸空交通在山竹來襲當天癱瘓……」
