China Suddenly Begins Reporting COVID Deaths, Raising Suspicions

China has reported the first COVID-related deaths in over a year this past week, raising concerns about the accuracy of the country’s reporting.

QUICK FACTS:
  • China reported deaths due to COVID-19 for the first time since Jan. 2021 on Saturday, leaving U.S. intelligence agencies questioning the accuracy of the numbers, PJ Media reported.
  • “Does anyone really believe that China isn’t lying about its COVID-related deaths?” author Matt Margolis tweeted. “Why, after nearly two years of China hiding their COVID-19 case numbers, are they suddenly reporting a surge?”
  • China allegedly has a “zero tolerance” policy for slowing the spread of the virus, a strategy they claim has prevented the country from having high numbers.
PJ MEDIA ON CHINA’S SUDDEN CHANGE IN REPORTING:

“What exactly is going on here? Why is China suddenly reporting deaths and cases like this after keeping them secret for so long?”

BACKGROUND:
  • Internal reports from China have shared a different story from what the rest of the world has been told, with claims of ash urns being secretly delivered to funeral homes.
  • “Outside one funeral home, trucks shipped in about 2,500 urns on both Wednesday and Thursday, according to Chinese media outlet Caixin. Another picture published by Caixin showed 3,500 urns stacked on the ground inside,” Bloomberg reported.
  • Along with the two newest deaths reported, China also has seen a surge in cases, the first since the beginning of the pandemic when the country started the spread of COVID.
