SINGAPORE: The National Heritage Board (NHB) will hold a travelling exhibition in March to mark the 10th anniversary of the SARS outbreak in Singapore.

The project, co—led by NHB and Tan Tock Seng Hospital, is also supported by agencies involved in combating and containing the SARS outbreak.

The exhibition will trace the outbreak of SARS, or Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, in Singapore and the various measures the country adopted to fight the disease.

Health care efforts in combating and containing SARS as well as preparedness against future infectious diseases will also be highlighted in the exhibition.

Tan Tock Seng Hospital will also be paying tribute to the healthcare workers who helped in the fight against SARS.

"It was a mystery for everyone (in the beginning)... It’s just that (when) you are on duty, you go on doing what you need to do," said S Sevakame a/p Ponnusamy, senior assistant nurse at Tan Tock Seng Hostpial.
