FEATURING JOY MING KING – As infections and deaths from the coronavirus continue to rise in the US and nations like Russia, India, and Brazil, some parts of the world are offering a model for how to beat the deadly disease. One major success story is Hong Kong where out of more than 7 million residents there have been only 4 deaths attributed to Covid-19.

The backdrop for this stunning statistic is that the past year saw Hong Kong all over international news headlines for a persistent pro-democracy movement that refused to back down in the face of police heavy handedness and a pro-China government.

Now, it appears as though that very movement, rather than Hong Kong’s discredited government, is responsible for organizing a successful response to the coronavirus.
