第十二任港督卜力(任期1898年-1903年)任內主力處理鼠疫問題,從三大方面將之解決:首先是改善華人居住環境,增加綠化地帶,因此他清拆太平山一片華人居住區,改建為卜公花園;其次是提供衛生設施,例如於1904年建成全港第一所公共浴室磅巷公廁;另外亦建設了細菌檢驗所,以進行病理學研究及研製疫苗(現址成為香港醫學博物館)。

Blake was the twelfth governor of Hong Kong from 1898 to 1903.  During his tenure, he focused on dealing with the plague in three ways.  The first was to improve the living environment of Chinese by increasing the green belt, which he did by demolishing the Chinese residential area around the Peak area and building the Blake Garden on its site.  The second was to provide hygienic facilities such as the Pound Lane Public Toilet and Bathhouse, which were the first of their kind.  What was more, in order to conduct pathological research and develop vaccines, Blake founded the bacteriological institute, which is now the Hong Kong Museum for Medical Sciences.
