From the Global Platform for the Rapid Generation and Transfer of Knowledge on COVID-19 and older adults in low and middle-income countries:
COVID-19 and older people in China.
Until March 2022 there had been relatively few cases of COVID-19 in mainland China. Since then, parts of the country have seen a rapid surge in rates of infection, leading to emergency public health responses. China contains over 166 million people aged 65 or more. This webinar will assess the specific vulnerability of older people to the new pandemic situation.
Friday 27th May at 12 noon (UK time).
Chair: To be confirmed
Zhaorui Liu, Peking University Institute of Mental Health.
Francesca Chiu, University of East Anglia and the University of Copenhagen.

Over five million Ukrainians have left their home country because of Russia’s military attack… More than half of all Ukrainian refugees went to Poland, while Germany has welcomed over 300,000.
On 3 April 2022 a strict lockdown was introduced in the Chinese city of Shanghai, in response to rapid increases in reported COVID-19 cases.
“Rather than locking the elderly up to protect them, the government should have provided incentives to encourage vaccination,” writes Francesca Chiu.
Covid has surged in a number of Asian countries that had once held the virus at bay.
