Has the COVID-19 Pandemic Made China Stronger?

Even though the COVID-19 pandemic originated in China, the country currently seems to have the virus largely contained. The United States, on the other hand, continues to be hobbled by the disease. At the moment, America has over 4 million cases and over 140,000 deaths, more than any other country.

In this episode of our podcast, we discuss with Richard McGregor, senior fellow at the Lowy Institute in Australia and former Financial Times bureau chief in Beijing and Shanghai. Please click HERE to listen.
