CGTN's Dan Williams reports."


3. Illinois Joins Other States Imposing Stay-At-Home Orders. (March 22)

"New Jersey is joining the list of U.S. states imposing stay-at-home' orders. Public gatherings are banned and only essential businesses can stay open. The State of Illinois just began a similar policy after its COVID-19 cases hit nearly 600. CGTN's Dan Williams has more from Chicago."


4. Life In The Time Of Coronavirus: Chicago, Illinois. (March 23)

7. What Is A Stay-Home Order Like In Chicago. (March 29)

"Although Illinois was one of the earliest states to implement a statewide stay-home order, as our reporter Liu Xiaoqian finds out, people are still roaming the streets of Chicago."


8. Here's How A Nurse In Chicago Is Handling The Ongoing Outbreak Of COVID-19. (April 8)

"They are some of the first people working with patients during the COVID-19 outbreak. CGTN's Dan Williams speaks with Patrice Rosenberg, an ICU nurse at Northwestern Medicine, about her experience during the pandemic and what people in the health care industry need to do to continue their difficult work."
