Wuhan residents have new proof that China is still lying about Coronavirus… by downplaying the number of cases and deaths in their country.
Currently, China has claimed that just 3,304 people have died in the communist dictatorship. Of that, they claim 2,500 occurred in the city of Wuhan.
The low death toll is shocking–because it’s far less than the number of people who have died in much-smaller, much-wealthier Italy and Spain.
But the view from the ground proves that China may be suffering from an Italy-like crisis far more than they let on.
“[The official death numbers] can’t be right… because the incinerators have been working round the clock, so how can so few people have died,” said a Wuhan resident known as “Zhang,” in an interview with Radio Free Asia. “They started distributing ashes and starting interment ceremonies on [last] Monday.”
In the week since Wuhan has begun delivering ashes, each of the largest seven funeral homes has processed about 500 bodies per day. By processing 3,500 bodies in one week, that, by itself, would disprove the entire country’s official death count.
What’s more, bodies are still being cremated. A Chinese news site reports that 5,000 more urns were delivered to one Wuhan funeral home in just one day.
Online estimators have taken the known data about the speed of cremations and the funeral home capacity and used that to give a more accurate estimation. According to those estimates, the number of deaths in Wuhan would be roughly 46,800–nearly 20 times higher than the government’s official figures.
