Coronavirus has been dominating the news cycle for several weeks, but there are a lot of things still unknown. One of the best ways to solve a problem, is to have accurate and up-to-date information. Are we getting that from China? Do we have all the resources we need to properly handle coronavirus? This week, Heritage Foundation expert Peter Brookes talks about the U.S. response to the coronavirus outbreak, stopping the spread of disease, and The Trump Administration’s response.

    I go back and forth between “WE’RE ALL GOING TO DIE” and this is not that big a deal. How big, in the long run, did SARS end up being? A few things bother me: the long incubation period, that cases are popping up outside of China with no apparent contact with China (S Korea), and just depending on the Communist Chinese to do the right thing. Thanks for the interview.

    These are all VERY valid questions, and like you alluded to, the U.S. must keep a close eye on the unfolding situation in China. We cannot afford to be heavily reliant on information from the Chinese government or the international press, rather seek direct, unfiltered information. It’s a good reminder on how we can avoid the mistakes made by the Chinese and continue to keep Americans in the loop on this both here and abroad.
