Disturbing video purportedly shows people collapsing suddenly in the streets of Wuhan due to the coronavirus

Disturbing videos shared online purportedly show people collapsing suddenly in the streets of the Chinese city of Wuhan.

Dozens of videos reportedly coming from Wuhan – the centre of the new coronavirus outbreak – show people suddenly collapsing as people in face masks rush to help. Medics can also be seen tending to some people who collapsed in the street.

The authenticity of the videos, which are being widely circulated on social media, cannot be verified. It is also not clear where or when much of the footage was taken, though all of it appears to come from China.

Wuhan, a city of some 11 million people, has been placed on total lockdown, with roads blocked, trains cancelled and airports closed following the coronavirus outbreak that has killed at least 26 people and infected 800 worldwide.
