Coronavirus: Chinese Officials Removing People From Homes, Watch Video

A video reportedly shot in the city of Wuhan, the epidemic’s epicenter, shows hazmat suit-clad officials forcibly removing three people from an apartment. The first two, wearing face masks, walk out the door and down a hallway with the officials, who are wearing white hooded jumpsuits, face masks and bright green gloves. The third, a man, kicks and tries to resist, lying on the floor in the doorway with the officials standing over him. Finally, the officials resort to carrying him into the hallway and down a flight of stairs. Watch full bulletin.
