EcSS is a community research project that aims to analyse the epidemiologic patterns of influenza and related infections like COVID-19 in Hong Kong. Data for the study are drawn from community participants who voluntarily report ILI symptoms on-line on a weekly basis. The inclusion of location data would be used to evaluate the geographic distribution of infections. EcSS is an entirely non-profit and non-remunerative project administered by researchers of the Stanley Ho Centre for Emerging infectious Diseases, The Chinese University of Hong Kong. The results could complement and supplement academic research and public health surveillance for the benefit of Hong Kong.
