Summary

A medical worker in a protective suit tends to a patient in a hospital in Wuhan, China.Victor Yu is not one of the more than 2,500 people who the Chinese government says were killed by the coronavirus. Like Yu's niece, many of them asked for anonymity because they fear possible repercussions for criticizing the government.One father described being unable to schedule lifesaving surgery for his child born with a rare genetic disease.Another person said he'd been unable to have the catheter of his father, a paralyzed diabetes patient, changed for weeks because of scarce medical staff.Parents of a 20-year-old daughter with acute leukemia described how they were stuck in Wuhan, which has been under strict quarantine since Jan. 23, and could not transfer their child to an outside hospital equipped to treat her.On Feb. 24, one month into Wuhan's lockdown, officials claimed that some people, including non-COVID-19 patients who wished to seek treatment outside the city, would be permitted to leave Wuhan.
