To believe that is to believe the Chinese govt covered up around 95% of the actual deaths from Covid-19 in Hubei province this time last year. The above comes from the UK's Daily Mail, so it's likely part of the British state's strategy of 'dehumanizing' China. But if it's true, it would put China's death toll from Covid more in line with western European figures, which we know are inflated because so many non-Covid deaths are being attributed to it... which means eitherGetting notice:
Why did 150,000 fewer Chinese people suddenly stop receiving state benefits just after Covid outbreak began? Beijing in new row over virus ' deaths cover-up'Disturbing Chinese government statistics reveal a huge drop in the number of old people receiving state payments in Hubei – the province containing the city of Wuhan – in the immediate aftermath of the pandemic’s eruption.
The official data, which shows a fall of more than 150,000 people receiving the benefits in the first quarter of last year, will fuel fears the death toll from Covid-19 in China was far higher than the government has admitted.
According to the Chinese authorities, there have been only 4,636 Covid deaths in their nation of 1.4 billion – with all except 124 of the fatalities in the central province of Hubei. There is widespread scepticism over these figures.
They conflict with studies of cremations and news reports from Wuhan, one of which claimed 10,000 funeral urns were delivered over two days to a single funeral home before news was censored.
a.) the Chinese govt is playing DOWN 'The Covid', presumably to keep its population calm, or
b.) Western govts are playing it UP, presumably to terrorize their populations.
