The Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). This disease has been popping up all over the United States affecting many groups of people by being put in quarantine, and unfortunately death. 

Although, this disease originated from China and the talented doctor that informed the Chinese government was named, Senior Wuhan, died from the disease itself a few weeks ago. This isn’t the first time that China has wanted to cover up a disease or medical news from their citizens and the rest of the world, which has many people speculating that the government is trying to hide something from all of us. Senior Wuhan leaked this disease and its dangers to a journalist,Chen Quishi, who wrote a very detailed warning to the people of Wuhan about the doctor findings of the virus. Not surprisingly enough, he went missing a few days ago and his family is speaking out to find him. 

Based on past occurrences from the Chinese government, kidnapping citizens and holding them hostage has been quite effective and has pushed them out of numerous scandals driven by the ultimate fear of the victim’s family being harmed further. But despite all of this, that didn’t stop Quishi’s family from making his unjust disappearance known to the media all around the world.Journalism is an important job allowing the voice of the people and what they deserve to know to be taken into account, but can ultimately be quite dangerous.
