Episode 35: Conversation With Prof. Vivian LinVIEW EVENT DETAILS
On January 23, 2020, the first case of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) was confirmed in Hong Kong. Two years have passed as we witness the virus spreading beyond borders and shifting the ways we work, live, and interact, while new variants of the pandemic continued to emerge. From alpha to omicron, what do the new variants mean for the direction of the pandemic? What are the best ways to curb the virus as Covid cases surge? What are the latest data and scientific research on vaccination? How long will Hong Kong come out of the pandemic?
