Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, experts are paying more attention to the possible diseases that can cause a global outbreak. Apart from coronavirus, there are many other possible bacteria and viruses that can be a potential threat to people's health.


Award-winning director Janet Tobias, together with some of the world's best experts in public health, explore some viruses that can create the next global pandemic on Unseen Enemy. The film focuses on three case studies: Ebola, influenza, and Zika - all local outbreaks that became widespread epidemics.


In the film, doctors, public health academics, and many people lives are shown to be deeply changed by the impact of the epidemic. From the Ebola epidemic in West Africa to the Zika outbreak in Brazil, the film investigates the reason why a virus can spread across people speedily. Back to Hong Kong, how can we learn from the pandemic that happened in this century to prevent a future possible outbreak?


Join us on July 2 (Friday) for the film screening of Unseen Enemy, followed by a 30-minute Q&A session. Professor Leo Poon, Co-Director of HKU-Pasteur Research Pole and Professor in the HKU School of Public Health and Dr. Hui-ling Yen, Associate Professor at the Division of Public Health Laboratory Sciences of the HKUMed School of Public Health, will discuss the insights and lessons learned from the global pandemic and answer questions from the public.
