Has Coronavirus Turned into Political Show? Dr. Lin Xiaoxu

Is the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak going to stay at the level of SARS, MERS, and Ebola? Or is it going to be much worse? How are the Chinese people coping with the crisis? And what’s the communist leadership’s bottom line if the epidemic grows out of control?

We interviewed Dr. Lin Xiaoxu, a Chinese and American trained microbiologist. He was lab director at the viral disease branch of the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research and was involved in the outbreak response for MERS in the Middle East in 2014.
