Last year, France Télévisions reporter Arnauld Miguet became the last remaining Western journalist in Wuhan, as the Chinese city experienced 133 days of the world's most restrictive Covid-19 lockdown. From the early rumours of a mysterious new virus, to the challenges of reporting in a ghost town, Miguet's new book "133 jours à Wuhan" offers a unique perspective on the early days of the global pandemic. He shared his experience with Haxie Meyers-Belkin.
