Dear HIFA Colleagues,
I came across an interesting article that gives a detailed account of the spread of the current SARS outbreak in China.
"No health authority has ever tackled the challenge currently faced by China, however, as the country grapples with a new coronavirus just as hundreds of millions prepare to travel during the Lunar New Year period- the largest annual human migration on Earth."
The article also shares perspectives about a possible "cover up" of information and its implications.
