(FreedomBeacon.com)- A million people in China have been locked down due to numerous coronavirus infections in Wuhan, where the epidemic started in late 2019.
The Jiangxia district of Wuhan has been locked down for the ensuing few days after four asymptomatic cases were discovered there this week. There is no way to determine how many instances were found because China has consistently misled throughout the epidemic about various topics, including the number of cases and fatalities in the communist country and the incorrect attribution of the virus to the U.S. military.
According to CNN, public transit, entertainment venues, minor clinics, supermarkets, restaurants, state-controlled houses of worship, learning facilities, and tourism destinations were all closed.
Residents were prohibited from leaving their houses in high- and medium-risk areas to decrease the movement of people further, lessen the danger of cross-infection and achieve dynamic zero-Covid in the shortest period feasible.
The coronavirus pandemic, which started sometime in late 2019, killed an estimated 15 million people and cost the world economy trillions of dollars in damage. However, a precise sequence of events has never been determined since China has resisted international demands to allow a probe to take place within its borders.
According to a previously unreleased U.S. intelligence dossier from last year, three researchers from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, China’s first Biosafety level-4 facility, were admitted to the hospital in November 2019 with symptoms like COVID-19.
According to U.S. authorities, China “deliberately” underreported its genuine numbers “by at least a factor of 50.”
Early in the outbreak, according to reports, British authorities informed Prime Minister Boris Johnson that China may have underreported its numbers “by a ratio of 15 to 40 times.”
In April 2020, evidence from Wuhan revealed that the actual death toll was around 40,000, despite China’s claims that there had only been less than 4,600 fatalities nationally.
A conservative estimate from the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) in April 2020 suggested that China significantly and “deliberately” underreported its numbers and that the country’s actual numbers at the time had to be at least 2.9 million infections with well over 100,000 deaths. The AEI gave China the benefit of the doubt when developing its calculations.
