This is the story of how a virus we didn’t even know existed three months ago has managed to change the way we live so drastically. Coronavirus (Covid-19) has impacted life all across the globe for billions of people, whether that be complete lockdown, adhering to social distancing, job loss, etc. but it all started in the city of Wuhan, China.
Wuhan became the first city in the world to be sealed off, roads were closed, trains were stopped and flights were cancelled. It is a city of 11 million people which was effectively quarantined. However this was to become a crisis that would stretch far beyond Wuhan and far beyond China.
All passengers from Wuhan to the United Kingdom were supposed to be screened on landing, but that was not the case as the UK seemed to carry on as normal. In this Sky News special we see how this virus managed to spread so rapidly, focusing on the impact it could have on the world.
