Since December 2019 the COVID-19 pandemic has swept through China and the world. COVID-19 is a highly contagious virus that spreads across various communities, cities, and countries very rapidly, mainly through person-to-person contact. The spread of COVID-19 is a typical temporal-spatial process, which raises key research questions about its spread through space. What factors have caused the spread of COVID-19 among the provincial regions of China? And, what roles have distance, population density, and migration flow had in this geographical process? This seminar will report and discuss recent research findings that help answer these questions, especially the important role which existing migration networks are having on the spread of COVID-19, which has important policy implications for any response.
The webinar will be conducted via ZOOM. The meeting ID will be sent to registrants by email.
