Reporters without Borders—or RSF—says since the outbreak in the first months of 2020, the Chinese regime has escalated its silencing of the press, arresting at least 10 journalists and commentators who reported on the crisis. Seven of them remain detained or missing to this day.

Head of RSF’s office in Taiwan, Cedric Alviani says informing the public on the unprecedented health crisis is not a crime—and the journalists should have never been arrested.
