  • Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Wuhan a year after the emergence of the Covid virus” – below is their description.

    It’s almost a year since the Chinese city of Wuhan was plunged into an unprecedented lockdown when people began getting sick and dying from an unknown virus, named Covid-19.

    The outbreak sparked a global pandemic – to devastating effect.

    A year later and life in Wuhan is relatively normal, the crowds and the bustling commercial activity are back.

    And along with it, an effort to change the narrative on where the virus came from.

    Yvonne Murray, who works for the Irish broadcaster RTE, has filmed this special report for us.
