China Misleaded the Figures of COVID-19 Positives


On February 10, 2020, the official record showed 2478 cases whereas, the actual number was 5918.


China has presumably manipulated the actual numbers of affected COVID-19 patients in the country than it really endures.


It came out with respective proof that the honest statistics is 10 times more than the figures showed earlier as the official figures during the accession of the pandemic. Surprisingly the fact was revealed by the Chinese Government itself.


An infectious diseases expert said authorities have failed to acknowledge the true comprehension of the infection to the world.


From the end of January, images of Wuhan's lockdown had circulated globally and became viral overnight. It was just a mere exemplar of what was about to happen to the rest of the world.


The Wuhan Municipal Health Commission reported, among more than 11 million residents 50,354 people got infected with the virus.


For the same, the Chinese Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released research where they examined around 34,000 people within Wuhan along with surrounding provinces and cities to find out if anybody had contacted with the virus. And the report showed 4.43% to be affected. 5000,000 cases were sought which is 10 times more than the official record.


On February 10, 2020, the official record showed 2478 cases whereas, the actual number was 5918.


In some cases, the disease was concealed as "clinically diagnosed" in which the patients showed the symptoms of the virus but were categorized as "suspected cases".


Earlier the figures were tampered but now it seems to be genuine.
