I was among the 19 million people watching last Wednesday’s Democratic debate in Nevada, the first really diverse state in the nation on the campaign trail. And while everyone beat up Mike Bloomberg, I was waiting to hear someone pounce on an even hotter topic that surely would have made an Asian Americans like myself lean in.
I’m talking about the Coronavirus a/k/a/ COVID-19. It’s a genuine crisis in China, where the latest stats show the virus with more than 75,000 confirmed cases, and over 2,300 deaths there.
