Doom Papers: Exiled Chinese businessman Guo Wengui recently revealed leaks from Wuhan crematoriums. He claims based on the number of bodies their furnaces are burning, the death toll could be as high as 50,000. The official coronavirus death toll is some 800 people in China. The current official death toll worldwide (as of February 11, 2020) is 1,110. But a Chinese billionaire with a history of blowing the whistle on his former government says the real figure is much higher. Exiled Chinese businessman Guo Wengui recently revealed leaks from Wuhan crematoriums. He claims based on the number of bodies their furnaces are burning, the death toll could be as high as 50,000. Wengui made the bombshell allegations in an interview with former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.
Wengui says there are 49 crematoriums in Wuhan, and they’ve been working 24/7 for 17 days. Last week, a crematorium worker identified as “Mr. Yun” told a Chinese newspaper he and co-workers have been working 24 hours a day: He also claims to have inside information that there are 1.5 million confirmed coronavirus cases in China. Wengui is emphatic that these are not merely quarantined or “under observation” but confirmed cases of coronavirus infection: Then officials tried to suppress news of his death. Afterwards, millions of Chinese citizens saw the hashtag #IWantFreedomOfSpeech on Mandarin language social media. But the Chinese government censored that too. –CCN.com
Can China’s numbers be trusted? Though Chinese officials are updating the number of those infected or killed by Wuhan coronavirus regularly, many have questioned the accuracy of the statistics coming from the Communist government. Some netizens have taken to analyzing screenshots allegedly from China’s biggest tech and media conglomerate Tencent, which may have temporarily displayed the total cases and death rate as much higher than official reports suggest. One of the widely-shared screenshots suggests a death tally 80 times greater than the official report. That screen grab from Saturday listed the death toll as 24,589, vastly higher than the 304 that were officially reported at the time. Total cases were also briefly displayed at 154,023, much higher than the officially reported numbers. – Medicine Net
