Wuhan, the ground zero of the pandemic. On 23 January, 2020, a day before Chinese New Year’s Eve, the entrances and exits of the city were suddenly shut down. 9 million citizens have to face all kinds of fear: unknown virus, unknown policy, unknown life and unknown future. From January 2020 to June 2020, this programme has recorded how people tried to adapt to the situation and restart their life in 166 days. This is a city of optimism and perseverance, a picture of survival from near-death. It is not a courageous sprint – it is a marathon of rebirth.
