CHINA CHERNOBYL: ‘Overwhelmed’ China continues to fake Coronavirus death toll

Spain's Coronavirus death toll jumps to 52 - five more since this morning alone.

The Chinese authorities are falsifying the Coronavirus numbers, a leading expert has confirmed.

Gordan Chang has said there has been a “breakdown in government” which means it has “just lost the ability to pick up corpses”.

Videos have been leaked by witnesses that show “overwhelmed” authorities making threats against people ‘spreading rumours’ or showing distressing handling of the situation at ground zero.

Chang, who is an expert in Chinese affairs and censorship says that the official death is count of 427 is “far too low”.

He said: “I think the government in Wuhan and some other cities have just lost the ability to pick up corpses.

“What we are witnessing is essentially a breakdown in government and keeping accurate statistics is a very minor part of their priorities right now.”

Chang believes that the situation is made worse, by people who are infected with the virus are being forced to stay at home with their families.

He said: “The quarantine has aggravated a problem and that is that people can’t get to hospitals, so they are at home…they are dying.

“It’s also created panic. That panic has had consequences on, for instance, social cohesion which is absolutely necessary if you want to beat an epidemic.”

Many are describing China’s situation as Chernobyl after it was initially covered up for months.

The latest official numbers breaching the 20,600 mark, with 2,790 cases believed to be critical. Case numbers are growing exponentially in China on a daily basis.

Beijing claims that current measures are not being carried out, such as proper screening of those escaping Wuhan.

China are also clamping down on heavily censored and controlled social media usage to suppress “bad news” coverage coming from the area.

Predicting that the virus will not be contained until May, Chang said: “This is only going to get worse.”
