UK’s government accusing China of manipulating case numbers of Covid-19

Michael Gove, British minister, has blamed the Chinese government of misinformation regarding coronavirus numbers increasing diplomatic tension between the two countries. When asked about low test numbers in UK despite knowing about the disease since December, he brought up unclear Chinese information about ’scale, nature and infectiousness’.

No kidding. China lied, people died? For realz? I honestly expect the numbers to be much higher than 40x. China Uncensored, SerpentZA and Laowhy86 have all been saying that the numbers posted by the Chinese government is grossly wrong.

Suppose you ran a totalitarian government and based on the best assessments of your military leaders you concluded that the release of a deadly virus "accidentally" would wreak a hundred times more damage upon free states than totalitarian states like your own? You could order complete provinces to quarter indoors under threat of death. Many would die. But, your capitalist enemies would completely collapse. Their economic engines depend upon the free flow of people and goods, whereas your system would shrug off the effects of a shutdown of the economy. Naaaaa.. They wouldn't do that! Would they?

As I have stated in another thread, China NEVER counted infected with no symptoms as confirmed cases, and even worse many died before being diagnosed, and we're never in the tally of even being infected, let alone deaths caused by the Wuflu. Plus front line medical staffs stated that the test kits had only been at best 50% accurate, and with them busy also pushing Traditional Chinese Medicine on every single patient, and claiming a 90% success rate while everyone also received normal treatments, the propaganda machine is working overtime.

Well, China lies. No shit Sherlock. The question is how much does China lie. If it's 40x it will be a question of time until we know it. When it get's to the point that enough of your population (at least in some regions) is infected that you strongly notice it in the overall amount of deaths, you can't really hide it. Maybe in North Korea, not in China. It will be time until we can make good guesses about the real Chinese numbers though.

Kudos to the PM for finding the courage to call China out on its dubious numbers. Maybe now others will step up. Some European leaders, along with the press, have been praising China, touting it as leader in this battle. None of them will won't admit they were wrong but just maybe they'll stop calling China a leader and hero.

China is a pirate state. They cheat, lie, steal, etc. They should be banned or conquered before they take over the world, I doubt it would be a better place undr their influence.
