It's Not Ending Soon | Dr. Takeshi Kasai | The Novel Outbreak
Mar 28 , 2020 | COVID-19
With every country reacting differently and each having varying levels of health infrastructure, it is impossible to tell just how long the COVID-19 epidemic will persist. But Dr. Takeshi Kasai, who heads the WHO region that includes China, South Korea, and Japan, warns that the virus taking over the world is not going to end soon. With this uncertainty ahead, he says a whole-of-society and whole-of-government approach is critical—but perhaps more so are the actions that each individual around the world chooses to take. Dr. Kasai speaks with our host and WHO Goodwill Ambassador, James Chau, about why COVID-19 isn’t going anywhere yet.
