China Rising - Wuhan | 4 Russia Rising

    • Politics

In January 2020, a mysterious new virus broke out in Wuhan, China. The Western world watched in horror as China cut-off the city of 11 million people, which scrambled to contain the spread. Within weeks, COVID-19 was everywhere. But before long, Beijing was declaring victory over the pandemic. We'll investigate how Beijing capitalised on the crisis, becoming a top exporter of Personal Protective Equipment and COVID-19 vaccines. The Chinese government is also challenging the narrative around COVID-19's origin and is accused of pushing disinformation to undermine trust in Western-made vaccines. We'll cut through the noise and hear directly from those of the frontlines of China's pandemic response.
