Six days after the first reported case of COVID-19 in Hong Kong on 23 January 2020, Professor Paulina Wong, Science Unit of Lingnan University, Hong Kong, working with the Hong Kong Public Opinion Research Institute (HKPORI), launched a collaborative community-based research project known as the “Community Health Project”. In view of a certain level of panic and anxiety emerging among the local communities, the project aims to better understand the public’s views on the pandemic, their stress level and urgent demand for anti-epidemic commodities. The project uses online survey tools to capture voices and opinions of the general public and it is still on-going, and expects to continue until the pandemic has ended.
