For most people, the new coronavirus causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia. (Xie Huanchi/Xinhua via AP)


We really can’t say enough about how much China has hurt people with their lying over the virus.

They lied to start with, trying to cover-up the virus, punishing the doctors who found it and/or talked about it, disappeared the journalists who tried to report on it (and we still don’t know what happened to them) and even told The WHO as late as Jan. 14 that the virus wasn’t yet known to be contagious, despite knowing it was and already having hundreds of cases.

Those falsehood allowed people to leave the Wuhan area and go all over the world.

But that’s not the only false or inaccurate information they’ve put out there.

Turns out they haven’t been quite accurate as to their number of virus cases.

Turns out that they left out of their count the folks who tested positive but showed no symptoms or “delayed” symptoms.

According to the South China Post who saw classified Chinese documents, that that was more than 43,000 people by the end of February.

In other words, their numbers upon which people of the world were postulating approaches and solutions were once again, false.

More than 43,000 people in China had tested positive for Covid-19 by the end of February but had no immediate symptoms, a condition typically known as asymptomatic, according to the data. They were placed in quarantine and monitored but were not included in the official tally of confirmed cases, which stood at about 80,000 at the time.

The Who classifies anyone who testifies positive as a confirmed case. The U.S. of course classes anyone who tests positive as a confirmed case.


So does it surprise anyone why China’s “cases” suddenly miraculously dropped in February on the graphs?

No wonder the U.S. has “more cases,” we’re more honest in recording the results.

But the Chinese government changed its classification guidelines on February 7, counting only those patients with symptoms as confirmed cases.

China will now start reporting on asymptomatic coronavirus cases that have been confirmed in the mainland starting April 1, according to an official from the National Health Commission and that all those cases will be centrally quarantined for 14 days, according to Reuters.

Paging the liberal media who have been beating us up for having the most cases and defending China. Will they be reporting this across their networks?
