“The first case of COVID in China was the 8th of December…” this piece looks at the outbreak of the disease from the perspective of healthcare workers in both Hong Kong and Italy. It starts with a summary of a conversation with Professor Mike Irwin, University of Hong Kong. We then move to a conversation with Mirco Nacoti, specialist intensivist at Bergamo, Italy.

Presented by Monty Mythen and Desiree Chappell.

This piece is part of a longer conversation, which will be available in full soon.
