"Any book on the topic of ‘public health in Asia during the COVID–19 pandemic’ must tick three boxes. It must be ambitious in scope; discuss the political, sociological and economic aspects of public health (not just the science of public health) at the national level; and examine Asia’s role in global health governance. This book does indeed tick all three. In addition, it has some strong highlights."
