(KFTK) – Heritage Foundation's Jim Carafano joined Annie to discuss the world-wide implications of the novel Coronavirus.

He said China, Korea, and Hong Kong are on the downside of the curve.

The Chinese economy has completely tanked. The last thing they want to deal with is a trade war.

Carafano said in the short term, China will be pushing to sell to the United States, not threatening to withhold anything.

“We have a good chance of flattening the curve,” he said.

What happens six months from now when China might still be grappling with this pandemic?

Carafano said he doesn’t know what their relationship will be with the rest of the world later in the year. “We’ll see what condition other people are in,” he said.
