On November 4, authors and experienced experts discussed the issue in an online conference. Specifically, by looking at how different countries in Asia have tackled COVID-19 through policy adjustments, how legitimacy was affected, and how public perceptions have changed. In doing so, speakers attempt to explain the long-term effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and discuss what needs to be done in the future to avoid similar disasters.
