    Both "what happened" (pass tense) or "what happens" (present tense) could follow with "to" or "about"

    For examples:

    What happens to you?

    What happened to donated blood?

    What happened to my recyclables?

    What happens about confirmed cases of food-borned illness?

    This is what happens about every day.

    What happened about applying for accommodation?

    The difference between using "about" and "to" is:

    (1)using "about" to ask for the GENERAL situation.

    (2)using "to" to ask for more SPECIFIC one.

    "What happened here?" is correct usage. You can even use it more elaborated:

    What happened here stayed here. (這裡發生的一切留在這兒, means不告訴公眾)
