COVID-19 Updates

During these difficult times, we know that you are facing unprecedented disruptions to your daily lives and communities. WEAI has compiled various resources on this page to help scholars, educators, and students navigate the ins-and-outs of remote research. The Institute remains committed to spreading knowledge and will update this page regularly with insight into East Asia from across the world.

Covid Map

Since the start of the outbreak, East Asia has been in the spotlight as the first known epicenter of COVID-19. Countries in the region were the first to identify cases of the virus and the first to instate containment measures. Now many of them are on their way towards recovery. Their successes and failures provide lessons for the rest of the world moving forward. We reflect on the impact of the virus on the region and the world at large in our remote event series, WEAI in a COVID-19 World.
