Content：Drawing on our experience with SARS and the knowledge that the competition between humans and microorganisms was never-ending, we can anticipate that we will continue to face attacks from unknown emerging communicable diseases in the future. While the SARS epidemic has certainly exacted a heavy toll, we shall continue to upgrade and improve our technology, facilities, and manpower. Through international cooperation, we hope to undertake a united effort to prevent emerging diseases from threatening the health of humankind, and thereby instill ourselves with new confidence to face the next wave of challenges.
