“COVID-19 Discrimination” A Blunt Affront To Human Rights

China’s strong anti-epidemic measures have not only protected the health and safety of the Chinese people but also contributed to global public health since the virus took the world by surprise. People in different countries have offered selfless assistance and expressed their sympathy for the Chinese people in a variety of ways.


Through interviews with human rights and public health scholars, frontline medical workers and personnel of related departments, this program shares China’s stories of battling COVID-19 to demonstrate that the Chinese government has always put peoples’ lives and health first and stuck to the people-centered human rights philosophy.
