Coronavirus: How the deadly epidemic sparked a global emergency | Four Corners

It’s likened to a scene from an apocalypse. Wuhan– a city much more populous than London or New york city– placed in ‘lockdown’ adhering to the episode of the brand-new as well as deadly coronavirus.

In China, more than 2 thousand individuals have actually died, with tens of thousands extra infected, and also authorities are resorting to extreme steps to try to halt the pollution. In interviews filmed on smartphones, Chinese lobbyists as well as Australians trapped in the lockdown clarify what they are going through.

Four Corners graphes just how the break out occurred and also checks out whether a whitewash by Chinese authorities allowed the virus to spread.

  1. When an Aussie is scared you know it’s serious.

    • @Karen Pierce its getting close

    • This guy looks like he’d be hanging around the trainstation asking for a cigarette and a few dollars

    • Are they supposed to be extra brave or something? News to me.

    • Winds of March Journey/Perry tribute band

      @TrickedHat1139 which only works for 8 hours and of course LOTS of people have it now that youd never know.

      Meanwhile, people are screaming from stress and have no masks.

      And kids dont really get it, much less die.

    • I’m Aussie, I’m scared. Don’t trust the government’s they care more about money than human lives. They will keep everything running as long as possible to keep the cash coming in with zero care for human life.

  2. To those who spoke out, put themselves at risk for doing so and then died, Dr. Li Wen-Liang and others, rest in peace. You will be remembered as heroes.

    • troy malik watson

      ye

    • @MariOlsdatter Wow MariOlsdatter, is that the christian way? What a hypocrite you are lady. Sitting up on your ivory tower casting stones? Shocker! How about you use correct punctuation or proof read your own brilliant works of literature before you go blasting Karen Pierce for her “gibberish”- effing bully acting all high and mighty, and you have the nerve to come at me sideways like that?? how bout you sit down and take a few plays off instead of answering every single person on this thread

    • Fionabuster D. I’m a human. Humans forget, if you don’t forget you’re a psychopath.

    • Khaw How Seang, I was gonna say the same :/

    • “Your shortages of masks, gloves, tests, and equipment, and even your stock market plunging, was it all caused by China?
      Yes, actually. In one way or another it was. China is the world’s biggest producer of medical supplies like masks and gloves, and virtually all the inventory from around the world was also scooped up by China when the outbreak first occurred. The stock market crash is most certainly a direct result of the Wuhan corona virus outbreak, and during a US presidential election year, no less. The only question is, was it deliberate?

  3. Yo while we’re watching this, there are scientists in a lab scrambling to find a cure.?Let’s thank them?

    • @Onion Master they have a patent for it . look in to it yo

    • John Cuccini issue and that was my last name in a it so hard I i

    • Dr. donna Walter

      @Rum V – unfortunately, man can make a virus, or viruses.

    • “Your shortages of masks, gloves, tests, and equipment, and even your stock market plunging, was it all caused by China?

    • Srishti Chatterji

      My aunty is one of those scientists!

  4. I pray that anyone reading this would be able to come back here in 20 years to watch this video again and see how it began. Stay safe

    • True

    • “Your shortages of masks, gloves, tests, and equipment, and even your stock market plunging, was it all caused by China?

    • @Life Time Exponential, not arithmetic. First one, then two, then four, then eight, then 16, 32, 64, 128, and on and on…

    • @German Her Nothing to laugh about.

    • @Karen Pierce didn’t have internet and YT that far back.

  5. Here in Spain we are in Quarantine already started today

  6. I’m in China now. From what I saw at the beginning, Everybody think this is a flu. But after half month, everything changes, Wuhan was been locked. All the Medical staffs in China are sending to Wuhan. The country begin to build hospitals, include simple isolation hospital. All the Chinese begin to buy the mask all over the world and send them back to mainland for free. After this 2 months this CORVID-19 has been controlled in China, only 20 new cases per day and most of them is from other place. What I want to say is that, we still remember how Japan help us, Korean help us and America companies (not government) help us, we will try our best to help the world, lets beginning from Italy. And hope everybody reading this would be good from CORVID-19.

  7. Dr Lee was killed, i tell you now the man was killed by this government, I don understand why thy keeping this virus a secret!!

    • When western coutries keep silent, it is for avoiding panic.
      When China do the same, it is a fault.
      What a double standard.
      This is the answer for your question. When a novel virus outbreak, we know nothing about it and we do not know how to deal with it. We do not know how strong it would be and how fast it would spread. Avoiding panic is a good way for starting. Panic people would run out of the city and accelerate the spread.

  8. Those poor medical staff… I fully respect anyone in that field, on the front lines of such horrors.
    In these dark times, we can only band together and help each other as best we can.

  9. Video everyone should see. This is reality and general population not fully aware still.

    • @The One also what does the Bible say about the plagues that will hit the world in the end times more than just the ones that you talked about… first time in world history that in America the church has been hit so bad.. a lot of denomination and church shut your and stop services we’re about April 5th.. now it’s longer than that… this is something that the world had never seen before especially in America… but right now we need God’s grace we need and and I’m talking about myself 2 call upon the Lord for favor and mercy…. which Our God says that if we turn from their Wicked Ways and cry a part of him that he will hear our land which Our God says that if we turn from their Wicked Ways and cry a part of him that he will hear our land which Our God says that if we turn from their Wicked Ways and cry for mercy and repent of our Wicked Ways he will restore our Nation…

    • tim Langdon the problem is all this can be fixed.

    • @The One check out the video yourself add it up for yourself.. because if you want to understand something you got to go to a source. Just like I knew that America United States are going to hit by a toilet shortage in stores. Because I checked out Australia what happened on Australia first because it happened in their first then it came to us. If you look at that video it looks like the apocalypse as yet the town in that province of China. if you think if we take that we got it bad here check out China and Iran. how they’re testing the people they’re going to door-to-door if you got a fever they will drag you out of your house lock you up quick

    • @The One that might be true but check halt 60 Minutes Australia. Then tell me what you think how it could be fixed.???

    • tim Langdon I’ll check it out in a little. But while I do believe this can be fixed the underlying issues won’t be. Just like drugs and alcohol and homelessness and such.

  10. Instead of exporting coronavirus to us it would be nice if they would export some of their ultra-modern highways to the US send us over something we can use

  11. We are living in a historic time in what will be world history.
    This is surreal.

    • i fear that just like the spanisch flu ..it is only building up as it will go around the world and come back even more deadly
      something corona virusses seem to do sometimes ( lets pray that wont happen )

    • M Stephens it will go down in world history if we survive it?

    • It is unique because of it’s latency, not always symptoms, & the unknown! Many (kids) can carry it wo/knowing or symptoms & spread it. Virus damages lungs! (Got out of bio lab..man made)Stay in & healthy.

    • We have been sleeping walking for many decades, just as the ww2 generation , we have been roused from our comfort zone , first by Brexit now this ….uk man

  12. This was done by design. They are setting there agenda into play. They “those with power “ al ready have the vaccine. The world will not be the same after this is over. A new beginning is among us..

  13. Seeing those doctors losing their minds like that hit me different…

    • “Your shortages of masks, gloves, tests, and equipment, and even your stock market plunging, was it all caused by China?
      Yes, actually. In one way or another it was.

    • @Volound go lick a doorknob

    • Markavelli Medina

      Bruh

    • @Soul Theory because he was the first to know about the virus…good or bad still is a discovery…

    • My eyes welled up when I saw that. That was heart breaking

  14. The corrupted Chinese government it’s the cause of the epidemic spreading thru the world!!!

    • @Bigbits1234 uni
      Nah man! He dead..
      He be so angry at himself for exposing, he killed himself.. Twice!
      Maybe you no understand?
      This is about totalitarianism?
      Nothing more, nothing less!
      As long as the surface picture is maintained, what happens underneath is anyone’s guess but the truth, is never far away?
      In some case, the truth is not always a good thing?
      In this case, a pandemic of a seemingly harmless disease, is the least of our worries..
      We will never experience the world again as it was 3weeks ago? but then the world was never the same after 9/11 so..
      Enjoy, take it easy but be vigilant..
      Peace!

    • @·sakura· Its been a pandemic for a week, where you been? Lol

    • @Lenny Gage Exactly!!!! I don’t understand why mainstream can’t see what is being done. It’s gone on for at least 300 years. This time, they get what they want. Depopulation and the final tanking of the so called economic global economy. This game is BS and people should have been woken up in 2008 when no criminal bankers were jailed. We fell, they gained, and the game continues because the people don’t pay attention. So tired of this. At this point I believe it is game over for mainstreams everywhere. And, people will die. Even after the virus dies out, we are up sh_t Creek.

    • There working with the American elite …there all corrupt

    • @Truth Holder Yes, but they are also working with the elite of the 8500 or so around the world. Let’s not forget where and who started the debt based fractional reserve banking system. That is the UK. No government is immune from this horrific orchestrated set up, and neither are the bankers, whom own EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE.

  15. Sell Bitcoin Now

    ALL THESE PEOPLE AT THE TOP HAVE ALOT OF BLOOD ON THEIR HANDS . THIS IS A JOKE

  16. JJ Organics Family Gaming

    china works on a point system, everyone is bad… everyone is a target. its communist country.

  17. To everyone in the comments section and to anyone reading this, please, Take Care. Protect yourself and your family, be Safe…Love you all.

    • Antisocial types, germphobes, and doomsday preppers and/or people who live off the grid or off the land will make out with this bs.

  18. It broke my heart seeing the Healthcare workers/doctors breaking down, overwhelmed due to the situations. They can’t even go home.

  19. SHARE THIS!
    Here in ITALY the health care system is collapsing because intensive care is overcrowded and doctors and nurses are overworked. Hospitals CAN’T treat everyone and this concerns patients with ANY KIND of medical issues. There are videos of nurses and doctors crying because they have to CHOOSE who to cure. There isn’t ANY space left for patients. Every service in Italy is currently on stand-by (lots of dead bodies are still in people houses because they can’t dispose of ALL bodies). Coronavirus ISN’T just a flu! PLEASE DON’T UNDERESTIMATE THE PROBLEM like Italian politicians did! Stay at home and DON’T get the virus! This is what Italy teaches us!

    *Of course lots of people are finally cured BUT a huge number of infected people means no space left in the hospitals, and no space left means that new infected people or people who need general emergency treatment (for example, for a car accident or a heart attack) can’t be treat, and this leads to more deaths. If you call the emergency number, you have to wait a lot.

    • You sound like there’s a 100% of mortality rate.

    • @Emir Latinović Look what I added

    • in the US, the healthcare system barely matches South Korea’s right now.

    • In Truth Fried , Better and Much Safer to stay home than go to the Hospital .so sorry to hear This sad News . please friend Be safe and I wish you all well . Much Love and Prayers

    • Here in New York City Wednesday March 18th 3:38 a.m. reading your comment. I seen in the news Italy is on lockdown. I didn’t know it was that bad. I hope and pray everything gets better for you over there over here New York City throughout 14th st Union Square is kind of empty.

  20. The authorities welding doors to keep people inside their homes is shocking.
