On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to George Fu Gao, the director-general of China’s Center for Disease Control and the man who released the Covid-19 genome. He discusses the safety of vaccines and why we should remain cautious as we pursue mass-vaccination drives, why it is urgent to roll out the vaccine as fast as possible, the effectiveness of China’s coronavirus response compared to the West’s, the West’s criticism of China’s Covid-19 measures, the growing number of ‘long Covid’ cases, the West’s mistakes in dealing with the pandemic, and much more!
