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 assessed the specific vulnerability of older people to the new pandemic situation.
