China appears to be returning to work after making progress in containing COVID-19. At the same time, reports suggest that the nation has concealed the true extent of the outbreak. And Sino-American relations appear to be in flux, with President Trump calling the novel coronavirus a "Chinese virus" at the same time he says the two nations are in "constant communication" about the pandemic. Miller Center China experts Brantly Womack and Aynne Kokas will discuss the geopolitics of COVID-19 and take your questions in a discussion moderated by Miller Center director William Antholis.
