The novel coronavirus presents a serious challenge to China’s healthcare system, as well as to global public health. Economic and political impacts will also be severe, with repercussions that will likely last for years. Meanwhile, some responses to the virus in the United States, and in other countries, raise questions about how the health crisis is being weaponized for racist, xenophobic, and anti-immigrant agendas. This teach-in seeks to provide medical, social, political, and cultural perspectives on the coronavirus crisis, and provide resources for students and educators to understand and address the crisis from multiple points of view.
