From the Headlines: Coronavirus
When Fear Goes Viral:
Coronavirus and the Human Cost of Stigma
Wednesday, March 4
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Join China Institute on March 4, when we convene China and global health experts - and a doctor from Wuhan via Skype - to explore what to do when a virus not only threatens our health, but also our humanity.
More About the Program:
In the weeks since the first cases of coronavirus were reported in Wuhan, the situation has exploded into a global public health crisis that has claimed over 2600 lives. As the number of infected individuals continues to grow, the world's gaze has turned to China - and to the Chinese people.
Nearly two decades after the outbreak of SARS in 2003, what lessons have been learned? Did early communication lapses exacerbate the health crisis, or has China's unique system allowed the government to take unprecedented control? How should international governments react now that the virus is spreading elsewhere? And where is the public sympathy for Wuhan - global citizens who stood with Haiti after the 2010 earthquake, with Paris after the 2015 shooting, and with Australia during the 2019 wildfires, but who have been all but absent in today's growing crisis.
