While looking up various historical nuggets of information for our project, I realised that there was a rather similar project done 8 years ago. Titled “The Invisible Enemy: Singapore’s Encounters with Infectious Diseases: Past, Present & Future”, it was an exhibition launched on 24th May 2007 at the National Library.

I cannot find any photos related to that exhibition online today, and the accompanying website “http://www.invisibleenemy.sg/” is defunct. A sobering reminder of a possible future with this same project – we will have to work harder such that history does not repeat in this case…
