Actor Daniel Dae Kim did it in a lengthy straight-to-camera video, which included admonishments against Asian-American racism that has spread along with the virus.

[The Conversation Africa] Tuberculosis (TB) and HIV pose a significant burden on South Africa's health system. There's a close relationship between the two.
