Researching mask, combining interest with work

Dr Simon Lam, an assistant professor at the School of Nursing, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, was a nurse at the Prince of Wales Hospital during the SARS outbreak in 2003 and was infected with the SARS virus. Looking back, in Hong Kong, before SARS, even the nurses at the hospital did not often wear masks. Nowadays, everyone is wearing them on a daily basis because of the new Covid-19 outbreak. Simon has also gone through this process-- from the infrequent use of masks to the usage of masks as a necessary measure of self-protection in a pandemic. Moreover, he has turned masks into his research interest and integrated interest with work.
