This short documentary provides an in-depth look inside the outbreak, following the coronavirus as it spread around the state.

Globe journalists retraced the devastating path of the coronavirus and followed the elected officials, bureaucrats, health care workers, and researchers who faced an enemy not seen in our lifetimes. The result is a portrait of early misjudgment as the warnings grew louder, and of a fierce battle against long odds to bring it back under control.
