  • Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “76 Days: Inside Wuhan’s lockdown” – below is their description.

    It was a year ago this weekend that the world’s first Covid lockdown began – in the Chinese city of Wuhan.

    The city was shut down for 76 days in an effort to contain the virus that’s now killed more than two million people right across the globe.

    But the director of a new documentary is trying to look past the tragic statistics and remember the humanity of the frontline workers and patients at the centre of the outbreak.

    Hao Wu’s ’76 Days’ was filmed inside four Wuhan hospitals during its lockdown – by his two co-directors.

    This report contains some distressing images.
