Exhibition to commemorate battle against SARS
*********************************************

In 2003, Hong Kong was struck by the outbreak of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and during the epidemic, the community showed its unity and the medical profession demonstrated its selflessness in fighting the disease.

To commemorate the community's contribution to the battle against SARS, the Hong Kong Science Museum and the Hong Kong Museum of Medical Sciences have jointly presented the exhibition, "SARS 100 Days -- Overcome in Unity". It is now on display in the Foyer of the Science Museum until November 30.

In the exhibition, the major events of the epidemic are featured on panels and in videos and newspaper clippings. Objects that the public will relate to, such as surgical masks, N95 masks, other protective gear and Chinese and Western medicines used in treating the disease are displayed. Visitors can relive the community spirit and the gratitude showed to the medical profession for its self-sacrificing spirit through the award of badges, appreciation cards and gifts that are also on display.

Located at 2 Science Museum Road, Tsim Sha Tsui East, Kowloon, the Science Museum is open from 1pm to 9pm from Monday to Friday, and from 10am to 9pm on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays. It is closed on Thursdays (except public holidays).

Admission to "SARS 100 Days -- Overcome in Unity" exhibition is free while admission to the museum is $25, with a half-price concession for full-time students, people with disabilities and senior citizens aged 60 or above. Admission to the museum is free on Wednesdays.

For details of the exhibition and related programmes, visit the Science Museum's website at http://hk.science.museum/ . For enquiries, call 2732 3232.
