The Corona virus hit most of the city of Wuhan in China. In the quarantined city, life has come to a halt for some time. A short film prepared to show the status of the city reveals what the virus has made a city of 14 million people.

The Corona virus, which has become the agenda of the whole world and has become more and more frightening day by day, has cost 2,130 lives as of today. The total number of survivors of the virus under the influence of 75 thousand 751 people is stated as 16 thousand 800. Recent statements reveal that the Corona virus has begun to appear in our neighbor, Iran, and even 2 people who have been found infected have lost their lives.

Now we will take you to Wuhan, China, the center of the Corona virus. Life in the city, which has been kept under quarantine for some time, has stopped completely. The streets of the city, which has a population of 14 million people, are empty and looks more like abandoned cities that we see in movies. The cessation of life in a crowded city attracts the attention of the cinema industry.

Shaken by the effect of the Corona virus, Wuhan was also following Lan Bo, a producer. Despite everything, Bo took his team with him and wanted to go to this city and shoot a feature documentary. However, developments in the region did not allow this movie to be shot. Bo and his team were even stuck in the city. As such, the producer decided to make a short film to show what Wuhan was like.

The images we will share with you shortly reveal what Wuhan has become and how important the Corona virus should actually be. Because there is no one in the streets of the city and life is completely stopped. Bo and his team were able to view only a few people in this short film, which is about 5 minutes long.

Wuhan is a city located on an area of approximately 8,500 square kilometers. Meanwhile, Turkey’s largest city with a population of 5.343 square kilometers of surface area in Istanbul. When we think that the population of the two cities is close to each other, we come to the conclusion that this city should be almost as active as Istanbul. However, the Corona virus has made it almost impossible to meet people in the streets of the city, and this is clearly visible in the short film.

Speaking about the short film they created with the help of their smartphones, Lan Bo states that their productions will be a reference to shed light on history and they are happy with the interest in this film. Stating that he came to Wuhan to make a feature film, Bo says that he will not give up this decision and will prepare another documentary in the future.
