    Two Wuhan whistleblowers missing months after helping expose coronavirus outbreak, activists say

    Amid tightening controls on information in China, two citizen journalists reporting on the coronavirus pandemic in Wuhan disappeared in February, according to a report, and months later, activists say the whistleblowers are still missing. Armed with smart phones and social media accounts, non-sanctioned reporters on the outbreak challenged the Communist Party’s tightly policed monopoly on information on an unprecedented scale.

    Pierre Haski, president of Reporters Without Borders, said both men are in "the hands of the Chinese authorities,” adding further: "The authorities may keep them until the subject of the health crisis becomes less hot. In this case, one could imagine that they will be released within a few weeks, but this remains unlikely. The other more usual scenario would be to hear more about them for a while. Then we will learn within six months that they have been indicted for subversion."
