陳婉玲 2021年2月25日   疫情已持續逾年,市民也儘量減少外出,你是否以為絕大部份的義工都暫停義務工作?   義務工作是指任何人士志願貢獻其個人時間及精神,不為任何回報,無償為改善社會或幫助有需要人士而提供的服務。根據香港超過四千間服務機構的紀錄,2019年義工服務時數共錄得超過2,264萬小時[1],這數字還未計算沒有登記義工的服務時間,以香港這個彈丸之地,數字實在驕人。 Photo by ray sangga kusuma on Unsplash

香港民意研究所幹事梁海欣   新型冠狀病毒肆虐全球,不僅損害個人健康,也令社會全面停擺——停工、停課、停業……市民生活大受影響,經濟遭到前所未有的打擊。民意調查看似與肺炎無甚關係,但其作為協助眾人了解民情、知曉民意的工具,其實也可以在公眾教育方面有所貢獻,幫助市民了解新冠肺炎對社會的影響,為防疫工作出一分力。   醫科學院或醫療專業團體可以透過不同形式的民意調查,了解市民對公共衛生方面的認知和意見,其中包括與新冠肺炎相關的醫學和社會議題。透過問卷調查,我們可以了解人們對各項防疫措施的遵守情況、對疫苗的取態、對疫後復常步伐的意見等。調查結果除了能夠讓醫療研究人員參考之外,數據經過加權[1]和綜合分析之後,還可以製成指數或圖表,向公眾發佈,幫助市民和各界人士理解疫情發展,從而調整生活模式及制定應對方案。

陳婉玲    在災難發生後,當地政府及救災機構須因應災難影響的情況而作出應變及回應,除拯救傷病者和控制災情外,亦需要協助受災地區的居民儘快回復正常生活,在過程中,須不斷檢視情況的變化,評估風險,並針對問題作出一切可行的解決方法。   在新冠狀病毒病發生初期,大家本來期望會像2003年沙士般,約半年就能控制疫情。可是,疫情出乎意料,病毒更蔓延至全球,香港受影響亦已逾年,且未知何時能夠完全受控,很多行業均受嚴重影響,而醫療及社會福利界也受到極大的衝擊,其中對行動及認知能力較差的病人、安老及殘疾院舍院友影響尤其大,甚至威脅其生命及健康。   為了抗疫,政府自上年7月起,規定除體恤原因外,醫院、安老及殘疾人士院舍均不得探訪。但其實病人及院舍院友,一直以來均非常需要及依賴親人或義工的支援,包括陪伴、飲食、關懷、協助做伸展運動等,缺乏家人或義工的探訪及支持,可嚴重影響他們的身心及精神健康,有些更因而患上抑鬱,不少更引致身體功能或行動能力加速退化,甚至有些在臨死前也未能見到院外親屬便撒手塵寰,院外親人也因此而抱憾終生,這些人道的需要實不容忽視。

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
