China and the Pandemic

Episode 1 of 2

54 Days tells the story of the events that led to the lockdown and the gulf between what Chinese officials and scientists knew and what they told the world.

A year ago, Beijing stunned the world when it locked down Wuhan, a city of 11 million people. For weeks, Chinese officials had maintained that the outbreak was under control – just a few dozen cases linked to a live animal market. 54 Days tells the story of the events that led to the lockdown and the gulf between what Chinese officials and scientists knew and what they told the world.
