How did Wuhan Slow and Stop? | Dr. Takeshi Kasai | The Novel Outbreak
Mar 25 , 2020 | COVID-19
Wuhan, once the epicenter of the outbreak, has this month reported several straight days of zero new local cases of COVID-19. This came as Italy experiences its highest death count in a single day to date. As the virus continues to shock and rattle communities and governments around the world, more eyes turn to Wuhan’s story. WHO Director of the Western Pacific, Dr. Takeshi Kasai, speaks with our host and WHO Goodwill Ambassador, James Chau, about how Wuhan was able to slow, and eventually stop, the spread of the virus. He also speaks about the dangers of stigmatizing people of East Asian descent, and why it’s important that the name of the disease is COVID-19.
