I have not been giving coverage to the coronavirus scare because I thought the news was already way overdone. But if an article posted today on Taiwan News is correct, this virus may be far, far more fatal than we’ve been lead to believe.
The Communist Party of China has been accused of underreporting coronavirus cases and deaths, and late Saturday evening (Feb. 1), the Chinese news service Tencent may have accidentally leaked real data on Wuhan virus deaths, according to Taiwan News.
According to the Taiwan News, Tencent showed confirmed cases of coronavirus in China at 154,023 on its webpage “Epidemic Situation Tracker.” That number is 10 times the official figure at the time. Tencent listed the number of suspected cases as 79,808, four times the official figure.
Most ominously, the death toll listed was 24,589, vastly higher than the 300 officially listed that day.
The number of cured cases was only 269.
Are these the true figures? I don’t know. But the Chinese government’s panic and the way they have quarantined entire cities definitely makes me wonder.
