Disappearing the coronavirus truth-tellers

    In the above video from DW News, some in Wuhan who have defied government attempts to muzzle the flow of information on the new coronavirus have allegedly been disappeared as doubts within China grow regarding the real extent of the epidemic. 

    Stark scenes from medical centers in Wuhan, China. A packed waiting room, overwhelmed doctors, and minivans seemingly carrying bodybags.

    The footage came from Chen Qiushi and Fang Bin, two citizen journalists looking to show the truth of what was happening at ground zero of the new coronavirus epidemic. Now they have gone missing.

    But as Beijing continues to scrub all media critical of the government response, can the government withstand growing public pressure to come clean on an outbreak that risks engulfing China and beyond?
