Coronavirus Updates: Facts from Hong Kong and Beyond
On January 30, the World Health Organization declared a global health emergency on the spread of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) that originated in Wuhan, China. Healthcare experts have warned that Covid-19 could rapidly spread, if not properly contained, and many governments around the world have begun to take precautionary measures to ensure public health safety. Amid the international concern and heightened fears about the disease, what is fact and what is fiction? The Asia Society Hong Kong Center brings you regular updates on the coronavirus story in Hong Kong that has reverberations elsewhere in the world. We are pleased to present on-the-ground public health experts and internationally renowned specialists with the latest facts and evidence-based findings regarding this epidemic outbreak. In episode 7, hear from Prof. Marc Lipsitch, Professor of Epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Director of the Center for Communicable Disease Dynamics. S. Alice Mong, Executive Director of Asia Society Hong Kong Center will moderate the discussion.
