The epidemic COVID-19 virus has caused international apprehension for everyday life, but in Wuhan, China, the initial location of the outbreak, the city initially on lockdown became eerily empty. W5 presents a rare, first-person account from one Canadian quarantined in the disease’s epicenter with INSIDE WUHAN. After receiving notice that his apartment building was about to be placed into lockdown, C.R. Holmes, took to the streets – avoiding authorities, living in his car and in hotel rooms for days on end, and uploading the footage of the ghost city back to Canada. While seemingly draconian the Chinese authorities’ quarantine of the city of 11 million is being credited for slowing and possibly containing the spread of the deadly virus.
