WTIP reached out to former Cook County resident, Tony Hegg in February at the height of the health crisis in China. Tony lives with his wife, Jessica Vega, in Shanghai, China. He is a physics post-doctorate researcher at the Shanghai Jiao Tong University. The couple has lived there for three years. Listen to that first interview here.
