Wuhan China, shockingly Raises Coronavirus Death Toll by 50% After City Suddenly Revises Figures.
Well, so much for the mainstream media, and Democrats like Hillary Clinton spewing Chinese propaganda to attack Resident Trump.
Wuhan China is the epicenter of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic.
Without Wuhan, China announced that they’ve revised the number of confirmed coronavirus cases and deaths in the city after “a city-wide investigation,” China’s state-run media reported.
The Wuhan government said total confirmed infections in the city have been revised to 50,333 as of Thursday, an increase of 325 cases, while the cumulative number of deaths is now 3,869 — 1,290 more than its previous count, according to CNBC’s translation of a Chinese language report by Xinhua News Agency.
Following the revision by Wuhan, China’s National Health Commission said Friday that the death toll in mainland China has been revised from 3,342 to 4,632. Meanwhile, total confirmed cases have been revised from 82,367 to 82,692, the NHC said.
Xinhua posted a notice from the Wuhan government, which listed four explanations for the discrepancy in the city’s data.
- The surge of patients in the early stage of the outbreak resulted in some patients dying at home.
- Hospitals were overwhelmed, which resulted in delayed, missing or erroneous reporting of cases and deaths.
- Due to China’s supposed vast network of health-care institutions, some failed to provide timely updates.
- Registration of some deaths was either repeated or misreported.
