‘Stronger restrictions needed’: Karl Long at his home in Dongguan, China

An Irish man living in China watched first hand as the country has managed to beat back the coronavirus and is confident Ireland can do the same.

Karl Long (39), from Greystones, in Co Wicklow, has been living in the Chinese city of Dongguan since 2002.
