60 min listen

In This Episode

As the UK and much of the West continues to struggle against Covid, in China, things largely seem back to normal. Pictures from the ‘Golden Week’, a week of state holidays to celebrate the People’s Republic’s founding, showed mountains and seas of people. On this longer episode than usual, I take a deep dive into China’s Covid response – finding out about life in China right now, China’s ‘Zero Covid‘ strategy and the economic ramifications.
