The timing and severity of the crisis have varied widely across our region. Many parts of China experienced a severe lockdown from mid-January to mid-March. Hong Kong and Taiwan started dealing with the crisis in late January and have been largely successful in keeping the situation under control, with only limited restrictions required. More recently, from mid-March onwards, other countries started taking action and have implemented moderate to severe restrictions, either as preventive measures or in response to an escalating public health crisis.
