In Part I, I described myself falling ill in the UK last March, as I witnessed the complacency and fatally-slow response to the pandemic. Like watching a horror movie, only this was no fiction, it was a real disaster.   Fail to train hotline team to respond to severe cases

去年十二月底,我看了一部電影,故事是關於無政府主義者計劃對香港主要基建作出核子武器襲擊,目的是要「推倒重來」。如果恐襲成功,香港大嶼山將受核輻射污染,三十年內都不適合人類居住。   雖然這只是個電影故事,而且大家可能覺得香港受核武襲擊的機會不高,但是放眼全球,核武對人類的威脅卻是真實地存在。自從上世紀第二次世界大戰,日本廣島及長崎人民經歷了人類歷史上首次核武襲擊後,人類一直活在這種恐懼中,即一旦任何擁有核武國家開戰,並使用核武,情況就會像是「同歸於盡」一樣。   《禁止核武器條約》談判第二階段會議 (圖片來源:聯合國, Photo Credits: Paolo Rivas)

數天前,在新聞看印尼發生6.2級地震,在先進的地方生活條件較高,但在較落後的地區情況就不一樣,希望這次印尼地震不要有太多的傷亡。同時,也不禁想起自己曾經在地震中死裡逃生,激發我分享地震的經驗。不如,就由突如其來的地震說起:   1999年9月21日1:47am 大家已經入睡,突然被隆隆巨響吵醒,不是雷電那種規模,聲音之大非筆墨能形容。當時還未能覺察突而其來的巨響是甚麼,已經從房間另外一面聽到父母大叫「地震」!   第一次震動是上下不停地震盪,忽然之間變了左右搖擺,整個大廈在動,以為是頭昏眼花,在不知所措之下,唯有在床上等待地震停下來的一刻!9月天氣還是熱,但蓋著被子好像安全一點。心想地震究竟多久才會停下來呢?   驚魂未定,地震平靜下來,而且感覺較之前安全,雖然穿著睡衣,便和父母立刻一起從十八樓走到地下逃生,不敢坐升降機。走到街上坐在路邊,只聽到救護車不停在我們家外面的大街經過!這是我第一次經歷如此嚴重的災難,是真正的死過翻生! 連結:風傳媒 (圖片來源:德國之聲)
