Home-based exercise

Exercise and the Immune System

Physical activity has many health benefits, one of which is to boost the immune system and its fight against respiratory viral infections. Research shows that physical activity has an acute and chronically beneficial effect on our immune response and potentially reduces risk and severity of respiratory viral infection. With the current situation in Hong Kong, it is important to enhance our immune system and reduce the risk of infection through a lifestyle with regular moderate physical activity.

In light of the current public health issues HKU Centre For Sports And Exercise has had to close its facilities for a period of time. Despite such, CSE encourages all staff and student to continue to be physically active to keep our immune system strong and our body healthy.
