Coronavirus nurse describes 'heartbreaking' job

More than 600 people have been killed by a new strain of coronavirus since its outbreak began in China at the end of last year. But while infection numbers rise, information about conditions on the ground in China is limited. Initially, news organisations in the country were able to report on the epidemic in detail.

In recent days, however, internet platforms have taken down several articles criticising the government's efforts to curb the virus. Officials have also sought to crack down on the warnings shared by a doctor when the coronavirus began to spread. In a rare occurrence, the BBC spoke with a health worker in Hubei, the province at the outbreak's epicentre.
