A city of 11 million people in lockdown, more than 2 thousand dead, tens of thousands infected and rising anger over how the crisis is being handled. Welcome to Wuhan, the sprawling capital of Central China’s Hubei province.

This Four Corners special charts how the outbreak occurred and investigates whether a cover-up by Chinese authorities allowed the virus to spread.
