Zhang Yonghe: People of the World Unite to Fight the Pandemic

COVID-19 is the gravest global pandemic in the past 100 years. Every country responded in its own way to the sudden and unexpected outbreak. In the hour of dire need, the Chinese government has stood together with its people. As the pandemic still rages across the globe, everyone should join forces and present a global front against it.

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.
