The Straits Times' China bureau chief Tan Dawn Wei chats with Money FM 89.3's Elliott Danker.

Despite public disapproval, China believes its zero-Covid policy will help save lives and help the country continue to be productive. But with businesses in Shanghai and Beijing not operating, economists are keeping a close eye on its economy.
