#172 - World’s worst spike in COVID deaths

23 mins | Mar 23, 2022

Today's episode from 23rd March 2022. On National Day of Reflection, remembering COVID victims, we're discussing how Hong Kong is experiencing one of the most deadly Omicron surges in the Asian Pacific, despite the country's tight restrictions. Then later, how micro-dosing your "me time" could help you reclaim your humanity and feel more motivated and productive. As countries around Asia ditch their zero-Covid strategies, Hong Kong is strictly adhering to the policy with little success. For The Financial Times, Oliver Barnes, John Burn-Murdoch, Primrose Riordan and Andy Lin examine the factors behind the nation’s deadly Omicron surge that has recently recorded the highest daily death toll in the world. Finding time to do what you want to do can seem impossible. But what if it was less than half an hour a day? For The Guardian, Amy Fleming reveals that taking twenty minutes a day can help you to reclaim your humanity and is a powerful tool to help you feel more motivated and more productive. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
