Ethnic Chinese seem more susceptible to this virus.

-12 ( +1 / -13 )

It isn't a surge at all.

-10 ( +1 / -11 )

Burning Bush, only viruses are resistant to viruses, get it ?

-11 ( +0 / -11 )

Goes to show you call believe anything being reported on this.

2 ( +3 / -1 )

People are dying from viral pneumonia, a disease they have vaccine for

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

Oh really? What do you call it when the number of confirmed cases triples and the death toll raises by a factor of five overnight?

3 ( +4 / -1 )

I hope the Chinese gov’t is held accountable for this, i.e., president Xi.

4 ( +5 / -1 )

The Chinese government will hide the true figures and wearing a stupid facemask isn't going to help you... You still have to breathe air! Facemask manufacturers rubbing their hands with profit!

The CDC and WHO requested premission to enter China/Wuhan back on January 6th. Is there some special reason that China has ignored these requests?

0 ( +1 / -1 )

When you build a hospital in only 10 days don't expect survival rates to improve. These are essentially storage warehouses with beds in them.

Numbers coming from the CPC are meaningless.

Where did you get that one ?

That seems surprising as the WHO was notified the 31th of December when there was not a lot of case not much more around the 6th and the USCDC was just issuing 1st level warming.

NB : you know that there is a CDC in China, so difficult for them to not be granted access to thair own country.

A change in the way case are acknowledged. Until now they just recognized people testing positive but since the validity of the test is not so good, they choose to recognize as infected people out of clinical diagnosis thought lung imagery.

And it not only include new people being tested but previous one. I guess because if they were diagnosed they will shoulder the medical bill.

Be side China is a sovereign state. Just like when Japan refuses request for asylum, it’s because Japan is a sovereign state.

Which is still a surge in the number of new cases, no matter how you spin it...
