Screeshot of Myriam Robin's article on the Australian Financial Review

According to the article, ASPI has come to dominate the Australian public's understanding of China over the past five years.

As the number of people dead and infected from COVID-19 sees a significant rise across the US, uncertainties among both officials and the public continue to grow over whether the US has already missed its best window of opportunity to curb the spread of the lethal virus, or even if the government is fully prepared for even more severe consequences.

During a news briefing held on March 9, WHO Director General Tedros Ghebreyesus reiterated that in areas with community spread, “testing every suspected case and tracing their contacts becomes more challenging, while actions must be taken to prevent transmission at the community level to reduce the epidemic to manageable clusters.”
