Meet Seto Wing Hong

He is a professor of the school of public health at the Hong Kong University and is also the co-director of the World Health Organisation Collaborating Centre for Infectious Disease Epidemiology and Control.

The WHOCC expert was recently on Bloomberg.

Seto was speaking about the Wuhan virus outbreak that has now reached Malaysia's shores and practising correct infection control.
