Fang Bin, a chinese journalist arrested in 2020 for posting videos about the situation in Wuhan hospitals at the beginning of the covid-19 pandemicwas released, although the Chinese authorities denied him entry to Beijing.

The US radio station Radio Free Asia (RFA) detailed that Bin, 48 years old and classified as a "citizen journalist", was released on Sunday, after which he she moved to Beijing to live with her son. The Beijing authorities reportedly denied him entry.

Bin was arrested after posting on social media videos of body bags and crowded hospitals in Wuhanafter which he was sentenced to three years in prison for "causing trouble and fighting" in a case very similar to that of lawyer Zhang Zhan, 39, who also reported the virus outbreak and was sentenced to four years in prison for the charges. same charges.

Following his arrest in May 2020, Bin went on a hunger strike which caused him to lose weight dramatically. Since the start of the pandemic at the end of 2019 in Wuhan, China has detained several activists who tried to report what was happening at 'ground zero'.

China has officially informed the World Health Organization (WHO) only about 120 thousand deaths caused by the virus, almost half of them this winter. However, various estimates put the death toll in China at around a million.

Last March, the WHO made an umpteenth appeal for China to share all the scientific information that may be useful to determine the origin of the Covid-19 pandemicafter knowing that it has genetic and molecular results, on the animal market that was the first place that was suspected, which has been saved.

The information, from the Center for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) of China, was uploaded in January to an open access scientific platform and discovered by European experts who analyzed it and communicated their results to the WHO, but since then all that data has been removed from it.
