BBC: Coronavirus: Why have two reporters in Wuhan disappeared?

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-51486106

They are citizen journalists, wanting to provide the "truth" of what is happening in Wuhan, the epicentre of the coronavirus outbreak in China.

They posted videos online, shared pictures and dramatic stories from inside the quarantined city that has been virtually cut-off from the rest of the country.

Now, they are nowhere to be found.

Fang Bin and Chen Qiushi were both determined to share what they could about the crisis, reporting from Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province, and sending what they found out into the world.

As a result, they racked up thousands of views on their videos. But their channels have now gone quiet, and those who followed them online fear they may have disappeared for good.

1. Because "There is nothing to see here. The flu is much worse.

Everyone just move along. Any concern is simply risible hysteria. Move along."
