I had the opportunity of interviewing my friend and teammate, Imei Hsu. Imei lives in Seattle, the epicenter of the Coronavirus (COVID 19). I wanted to find out what it was like for her and for her neighbors.
Imei is a health professional. She is not a doctor. This interview focuses on life in the Seattle epicenter.
If you were wondering how bad the coronavirus is, you should check out the interview below. This is a real interview with someone living in the center of it all. Find out how people are coping and how you can cope if this happens to your community.
