The fight against COVID-19: Notes from the scientific frontline in Hong Kong

Hong Kong is one of the densest cities in the world, with crowded high-rise housing, limited public spaces, and an efficient but packed mass transportation system. Yet the city of more than 7 million inhabitants has never had a full COVID-19 lockdown, and most recently has had zero to very few new local cases. What are the reasons for the city’s COVID-19 successes?

In this webcast, hear from clinical microbiologist Dr. Jasper Chan about his in-depth observations on the fight against COVID-19 in Hong Kong.

Presented in partnership with the UBC Asia Pacific Regional Office.
