Dear Access member,
We’re doing a COVID-19 update conference call with Yanzhong Huang, senior fellow for global health at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), where he directs the Global Health Governance roundtable. Access members can dial in this Thursday, March 5, at 2 p.m. EST for a moderated discussion and Q&A. We’ll give details in tomorrow’s newsletter.
Here’s something on a different subject from scholar and director of Brookings Institution Cheng Li’s usual beat: Kobe Bryant and his enduring impact on the Sino-American friendship.
Our word of the day is panic buying (抢购 qiǎng gòu), which seems to be happening in parts of the U.S. today from COVID-19 fears.
