Life after coronavirus recovery: The life-changing side effects (Prof. Adrian Owen) E902

On this episode of Going Underground, we firstly speak to Prof. Adrian Owen, world-renowned neuroscientist and CEO of Cambridge Brain Sciences. He discusses the findings of studies on recovered coronavirus patients which show the development of neurological problems such as worsened concentration ability and damage to senses such as smell. We ask how this could affect employment and the global economy, how medical emergencies such as cardiac arrests caused by Covid-19 could lead to the development of neurological problems, how similar viruses in the past such as SARS-2 have caused the same issues, whether the neurological complications are long-term or short-term, and more! Finally, we speak to former Hong Kong legislator and founder of Demosisto, Nathan Law, about the new Hong Kong National Security Law, implemented by Beijing. He discusses why he must conduct the interview with Afshin Rattansi from an undisclosed location, why he believes the national security law destroys Hong Kong’s freedom and autonomy, allegations of organizations in the Hong Kong protest movement being tied to Western intelligence agencies such as the CIA, the role of the US-backed National Endowment for Democracy in the Hong Kong protests, Beijing using the narrative of foreign interference to fool its own citizens, how the law arguably curbs freedom of speech and assembly, China’s policies in Xinjiang regarding Uyghur Muslims, and more!
