Christine Loh, UCLA Anderson visiting professor and former minister in the Hong Kong SAR Government
Dr. Robert Kim-Farley, professor in the departments of epidemiology and community health sciences, UCLA Fielding School of Public Health.
As a follow up to the World Today discussion on February 25th (see video), they will gather virtually to continue the conversation on the COVID-19 pandemic and its global impact from a socio-economic, business and public health perspective. While there is little certainty on what will happen next and when the virus will be contained, panelists will address the broader issues surrounding the pandemic.
The speakers will examine how the role of governments has expanded to deal with the virus; how COVID-19 could devastate many economies; and how the public health community is responding locally and globally. They will also share their longer term views on what the economic impact will be for the United States and globally and seek to explain how COVID-19 will not only have lasting effects on society and people’s behavior, but it will also alter the structure of global business.
