SARS: Cover Up and Aftermath

China’s mishandling and cover-up of the SARS crisis is well documented. But what’s less known is the fate of the forgotten SARS survivors, now suffering the horrific after-effects of the medical treatment they received. For the past ten years, they have been battling the Chinese government for their rights. Within a few months, SARS survivors started developing serious medical problems like bone disease or lung abnormalities. They tried to gain access to their medical records only to find that their records had already become a state secret. Today, many of the survivors are disabled. For the past decade, they’ve been battling the state for compensation and disability support,only to find themselves on government black lists. The film follows five survivors fighting for their rights.
