Sources Say China Lying About Extent of Coronavirus, 5 Times More People Infected

Evidence is growing that China is lying about the extent of the Coronavirus outbreak inside its vast nation.

Published

Evidence is growing that China is lying about the extent of the Coronavirus outbreak inside its vast nation, even as the virus spreads across the world.

Last last month, the Chinese state media claimed that only about 300 people had been infected by the virus named named 2019-nCoV. But others thought it was at least five times more than that.

“It is likely that the Wuhan outbreak of a novel coronavirus has caused substantially more cases of moderate or severe respiratory illness than currently reported,” the Imperial College London’s MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis said in a report.

The biggest fear is the fact that Wuhan is home to a major international airport for China. More than 3,300 passengers from all over the world course through the airport every day. That, they say, is how this virus spread so quickly.

On Thursday, U.S. Senator Tom Cotton scolded China for its failure to be forthcoming over the extent of the virus.

“There was a 28% increase in coronavirus cases overnight in China,” the Arkansas Republican wrote in a Twitter post. “Make no mistake, though: these aren’t ‘new’ cases. Just what China is willing to admit. It’s much worse.”

By the end of January, over 7,700 cases of the virus were confirmed worldwide. Cases have been recorded in China and more than 18 other counties.

But Cotton insisted that China was not telling the world the full truth.

“As of [Tuesday] morning, China has reported that the Wuhan coronavirus has infected more than 4,500 people and killed more than 100,” Cotton wrote Wednesday in the letter. “But the real number is likely far higher — perhaps in the hundreds of thousands — given the Chinese Communist Party’s long history of covering up and minimizing these crises.”

The World Health Organization declared the viral outbreak a world health emergency.

As Reuters reported:

The latest Hubei figures take the total death toll for China to at least 212. China’s National Health Commission is expected to release new national figures later on Friday.

There have been a further 1,220 cases detected in Hubei by end of Jan. 30, taking the total for the province alone to close to 6,000, Hubei’s health commission said.

Nearly 100 cases have emerged in other countries, spurring cuts to travel, outbreaks of anti-China sentiment in some places, and a surge in demand for protective face masks.

As Coronavirus Conspiracies Continue to Spread, China Sends American Journalists Packing

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was irate upon hearing the news.

Published

on

China’s reputation on the world stage has long been tainted by the actions of their authoritarian, communist regime, and the prolific spread of a deadly strain of Coronavirus in the world’s most populous nation certainly isn’t helping their reputation any.

China is the sort of nation where “win at all costs” is quite literal.  Their lax laws on labor and manufacturing have created an economic boom, as companies from around the globe look to exploit China’s underpaid and under-regulated work force.  The goods produced in China also aren’t beholden to the same environmental laws as the rest of the civilized world, creating a dire situation in where one of the largest nations in the world is running amok in terms of pollution.

When it comes to saving face, however, the tyranny of the communist regime in Beijing is extremely talented.

That’s why it comes as no surprise that reporters from the Wall Street Journal have been expelled from China while attempting to report on the true severity of the Coronavirus issue.

China revoked the press credentials of three Wall Street Journal reporters based in Beijing, the first time in the post-Mao era that the Chinese government has expelled multiple journalists from one international news organization at the same time.

China’s Foreign Ministry said the move Wednesday was punishment for a recent opinion piece published by the Journal.

Deputy Bureau Chief Josh Chin and reporter Chao Deng, both U.S. nationals, as well as reporter Philip Wen, an Australian national, have been ordered to leave the country within five days, said Jonathan Cheng, the Journal’s China bureau chief.

The expulsions by China’s Foreign Ministry followed widespread public anger at the headline on the Feb. 3 opinion piece, which referred to China as “the real sick man of Asia.” The ministry and state-media outlets had repeatedly called attention to the headline in statements and posts on social media and had threatened unspecified consequences.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo issued a heavy rebuke to Beijing over the expulsions, stating the American government’s hopes that the Chinese people will soon enjoy the same freedom of speech that much of the rest of the world already has access to.

Mainstream Media Now Asking if Coronavirus is Chinese Biowarfare Campaign

Rumors have swirled that the virulent strain of Coronavirus killing thousands across the globe is a result of Chinese biological warfare.

Published

on

For months, now, rumors have swirled that the virulent strain of Coronavirus killing thousands across the globe is a result of the Chinese biological warfare research agencies. At long last, the mainstream media is picking up on this question.

Many have been pointing out that there are three Chinese biological warfare facilities in the Chinese city of Wuhan, the area at the center of the viral outbreak of COVID-19, the sickness that has swept the world. Indeed, one such facility is only 300 yards from the fish market deemed to be ground zero.

Now, finally, it appears that the mainstream media is starting to ask questions about this “coincidence” of having biowarfare labs only feet away from the sport where an outbreak occurred.

This weekend, the Daily Mail is asking if the viral outbreak is a result of China’s biowarfare research?

Chinese scientists believe the deadly coronavirus may have started life in a research facility just 300 yards from the Wuhan fish market.

A new bombshell paper from the Beijing-sponsored South China University of Technology says that the Wuhan Center for Disease Control (WHCDC) could have spawned the contagion in Hubei province.

“The possible origins of 2019-nCoV coronavirus,” penned by scholars Botao Xiao and Lei Xiao claims the WHCDC kept disease-ridden animals in laboratories, including 605 bats.

The report added that the killer virus has been seen in Chinese bats.

“Genome sequences from patients were 96% or 89% identical to the Bat CoV ZC45 coronavirus originally found in Rhinolophus affinis (intermediate horseshoe bat),” the report says.

But the wild bats in question are unlikely to be the catalyst. The report goes on to point out that the only bats of this type live 600 miles away from the Wuhan fish market that became ground zero for the viral outbreak.

Furthermore, the locals in Wuhan do not eat these bats as some early reports claimed.

Officials now suspect that the Wuhan Institute of Virology may have “accidentally” leaked the virus either by having infected workers accidentally spread it outside the facility… or by some other, perhaps more nefarious means.

Naturally the lying Chinese communist government will not confirm the speculation.

China Death Toll Rises as WHO Declares Coronavirus a Global Emergency

The Coronavirus death toll has risen to 212 in China as the World Health Organization (WHO) moves to label the virus as a global health emergency.

Published

The Coronavirus death toll has risen to 212 in China as the World Health Organization (WHO) moves to label the virus a global health emergency.

The Coronavirus is spreading across the world rapidly now that so many victims have exited the incubation period for the sickness, authorities say.

And now, the WHO has moved to declare the outbreak a global emergency that has spread to at least 18 countries, wire service Reuters reported.

As Reuters wrote:

The latest Hubei figures take the total death toll for China to at least 212. China’s National Health Commission is expected to release new national figures later on Friday.

There have been a further 1,220 cases detected in Hubei by end of Jan. 30, taking the total for the province alone to close to 6,000, Hubei’s health commission said.

Nearly 100 cases have emerged in other countries, spurring cuts to travel, outbreaks of anti-China sentiment in some places, and a surge in demand for protective face masks.

China claims to have quarantined 60 million people in its efforts to stop the spread of the virus.

Unfortunately, there is no reliable way to get the truth out of the Red Chinese government, and other reports that have been smuggled out of China put the number of victims perhaps in the thousands, not the mere hundreds.

And notice how the Chinese government defined the situation:

“We are still at a very critical stage in fighting the coronavirus. International solidarity is extremely important and for that purpose all countries should behave in a … responsible manner,” that from China’s U.N. ambassador, Zhang Jun.

In other words, Jun is warning the world to stop trying to find out what is going in inside China and simply take on faith that the communist government is telling the truth about the measures it is taking and the number of victims it has suffered.

But already video has leaked out of China showing that the virus is far worse in that closed nation than the government is saying on the world stage.

According to some sources, China has 90,000 citizens infected with the dangerous virus, but Chinese officials are refusing to tell the world how bad it is there.

China Accused of Hiding Thousands of Deaths from Coronavirus

Chinese officials are being accused of hiding the true scale of the Coronavirus crisis from the world.

Published

Chinese officials are being accused of hiding the true scale of the Coronavirus crisis from the world.

According to some sources, China has 90,000 citizens infected with the dangerous virus, but Chinese officials are refusing to tell the world how bad it is there.

According to the Daily Mail:

A nurse wearing a protective suit and face mask treating the sick in Wuhan has claimed that 90,000 people have already been infected by the coronavirus in China – far more than the figure of just 1,975 issued by government officials.

China claims that only 56 people have died from the virus, but other sources dispute that.

In the shocking video, the woman says, “I’m in the area where the coronavirus started. I’m here to tell the truth. At this moment, Hubei province, including Wuhan area, even China, 90,000 people have been infected by coronavirus.”

“We don’t care what the government says. I will tell you through social media. Everyone, please donate masks, glasses and clothes to Wuhan,” she goes on saying.

‘Please help us,” she added. “Please donate disposable goggles, disposable masks and disposable clothing. Currently our resources are not enough.”

Chinese officials claim to be taking the health crisis seriously, of course.

Other videos show dozens of victims of the virus, contrary to claims of the Chinese government.

Horrifying clips have been posted online by shocked citizens only to be deleted shortly after. In one, the sick are seen sitting between drips and oxygen tanks next to three dead bodies covered in white sheets. The footage was deleted from social media channel Weibo.

Last week, in rare public dissent, a senior journalist at a Hubei provincial newspaper run by the ruling Communist Party called for an ‘immediate’ change of leadership in Wuhan on Weibo. The post was later removed.

Evidence is piling up that the Chinese government is lying through its teeth. Is anyone surprised?

Coronavirus: China Racing to Stop Virus Outbreak But It Already Reached the U.S.A.

Chinese health authorities are racing to put a stop to the transmission of the coronavirus outbreak that is now threatening international travel.

Published

Chinese health authorities are racing to put a stop to the transmission of the coronavirus outbreak that is now threatening international travel at airports across the world.Unfortunately, it is already here in the U.S.A.

China has finally admitted that an outbreak of the communicable virus is pinpointed to the Guangdong province in southern China. Several citizens and medical workers in the area have tested positive for the virus, we now know, the Associated Press reported Tuesday.

Health authorities now say that up to 200 cases of the virus have been identified.

“The recent outbreak of novel coronavirus pneumonia in Wuhan and other places must be taken seriously,” Chinese President Xi Jinping said in his first public statement. “Party committees, governments and relevant departments at all levels should put people’s lives and health first.”

The alarm about the dangerous virus is spreading:

In Geneva, the World Health Organization announced it would convene an Emergency Committee meeting on Wednesday to determine whether the outbreak warrants being declared a global health crisis.

Such declarations are typically made for epidemics of severe diseases that threaten to cross borders and require an internationally coordinated response. Previous global emergencies have been declared for crises including the ongoing Ebola outbreak in Congo, the emergence of Zika virus in the Americas in 2016 and the West Africa Ebola outbreak in 2014.

Officials think that the outbreak began at a seafood restaurant in the Chinese city of Wuhan in central China.

But the virus is already widespread in China. Cases have already been identified in Beijing, Sichuan, Yunnan, Guangdong, and other areas in China. South Korea is also finding cases.

In the meantime, airports across the world are on high alert for passengers showing signs of the viral infection.

Airports in China and throughout Asia, as well as India, Africa, Australia, Europe, Russia, Canada, and the U.S.A. are already taking precautions to try and prevent the virus from spreading across the globe via air travel.

Worse, now the virus has been detected in the U.S.A.

“The victim, a Snohomish County man in his 30s, recently traveled to China. He is now in isolation at Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett, where he is reported to be in ‘good’ condition, said Dr. Chris Spitters of the Snohomish County Health District,” KOMO News reported.

China’s Communist Party Re-Writing Holy Bible to Make it Conform to Communism

The Red Chinese recently announced that they are censoring and re-writing the Christian Bible to make it conform for Chinese communism.

Published

The Red Chinese recently announced that they are censoring and re-writing the Christian Bible to make it conform for Chinese communism.

The country’s communist leaders announced that the Bible and other religious books would be re-written to celebrate communism before being allowed to be sold in the country, the Daily Mail reported.

The government said that the religious texts will be re-written to remove anything that the communist leaders do not think praises communism. Anything deemed “wrong” will be cut.

The edict was passed down during a meeting held by the Committee for Ethnic and Religious Affairs of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, which governs religion in China.

The meeting was presided over by Wang Yang, Chairman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference.

As the Mail noted:

Mr. Wang stressed that religious authorities must follow President Xi’s instructions and interpret the ideologies of different religions in accordance with ‘the core values of Socialism’ and ‘the requirements of the era’.

He urged the officials to build ‘a religious system with Chinese characteristics’.

The officials agreed with Mr. Wang’s directives, adding that the mission ‘is the choice of history’.

The goal is to ban “heretical thought.” That is ideas “heretical” to communism, not heretical thought in terms of the religions being sanitized for communism.

In other words, China is pretending to be opening itself to religion, but it’s really just pushing communism in a new form by co-opting religious texts to push their oppressive system.

Of course, China is one of the most oppressive nations in the world and has for over 50 years arrested, tortured, and murdered Christians, Muslims, Jews, and anyone else that dares to become a believer.

No wonder American liberals love communism so much.

China Pushes Back, Vows Retaliation After Trump Signs Hong Kong Support Bills

Beijing is raging, and that could spell trouble for the United States.

Published

on

The United States and China have long been at odds on the world’s stage, at least in certain aspects of their shared relationship, but it appears as though things are about to take a turn for the worse.

For months now, Donald Trump and his administration have been working to negotiate a trade deal with China, who has one of the globe’s most profound economic footprints due to their willingness to forego morality and ethics when it comes to their labor laws.  China has not responded kindly to Trump’s attempts to even the playing field, leaving a great many American farmers with nowhere to send their goods.

Now,  US resolutions supporting the rights of pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong have Beijing enraged, and vowing to retaliate against the United States.

The bills were signed as Hong Kong continues to be gripped by turmoil amid widespread discontent over Chinese rule in the special administrative region. Chinese officials had hoped Trump would veto the bill and the president had expressed some concerns about complicating the effort to work out a trade deal with China’s President Xi Jinping.

“Look, we have to stand with Hong Kong,” Trump said in an interview on “Fox & Friends” last week, later adding: “But I’m also standing with President Xi. He’s a friend of mine. He’s an incredible guy.”

China was furious.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said earlier this month the act undermines both American and Chinese interests in Hong Kong.

“We urge the U.S. to grasp the situation, stop its wrongdoing before it’s too late, prevent this act from becoming law [and] immediately stop interfering in Hong Kong affairs and China’s internal affairs,” Geng said at the time, adding: “If the U.S. continues to make the wrong moves, China will be taking strong countermeasures for sure.”

On Thursday, a foreign ministry statement described Trump’s signing of the bills as a “hegemonic act,” repeated heated condemnations of the law and vows that China would take “firm countermeasures.” The statement also claimed that all the people of Hong Kong and China oppose the move, but did not specify how Beijing would respond.

Hong Kong’s protests arose after China looked to install a controversial extradition law some months ago, and the action has consistently been devolving over time.  There are near-constant accusations that China is employing undue force against these protesters, with many believing that their human rights have been violated.
