Jailed Chinese Journo May Not Survive

A Chinese woman journalist who reported on the chaos and mishandling of the Covid epidemic in Wuhan, and was jailed for four years, is close to death according to her family.  Zhang Zhang, 38, a former lawyer, has been on hunger strike, is severely underweight and “may not live for much longer,” her brother said on twitter. Amnesty International has urged that she be released immediately.
