Making a connection: Families in London and Wuhan discuss lockdown

About 9,000 miles separate the Su and Armitage families, but both share the common experience of living through a COVID-19 lockdown.

Both have faced the challenges of homeschooling their children and both have needed to improvise as everyday activities became impossible.

But their discussion, live on CGTN's Facebook page, also highlighted the difference between the situations in Wuhan and London.

The Su family has to scan an app before they can move freely around the Chinese city, as the authorities seek to control the risk of further outbreaks. In the UK's capital, citizens can move freely without masks to shop or exercise.

Watch the video to see how parents and children have felt about one of the most dramatic periods in both of their countries for generations.
