Wuhan, One Year On

On today's episode of World Review from the New Statesman, Jeremy Cliffe in Berlin and Emily Tamkin in Washington DC are joined by Rui Zhong, Program Assistant for the Kissinger Institute on China and the United States at the Wilson Center, to discuss how Wuhan has (or hasn't) bounced back from the first days of covid-19, whether there's a growing anti-China sentiment globally, and how administrations from the US to the EU and Britain should handle diplomacy with Beijing in 2021.
