Who could have guessed? The “recovery” has been juiced.
Via Kyodo News:
BEIJING – The number of novel coronavirus patients in Wuhan, the epicenter of China’s virus outbreak, was manipulated in time for President Xi Jinping’s visit last week, a local doctor told Kyodo News Thursday.
A number of symptomatic patients were abruptly released from quarantine early while a portion of testing was suspended, the doctor said.
China’s health authorities on Thursday reported no new cases of coronavirus infection in Wuhan, marking the first time for the city to have no instances of local transmission since the viral epidemic began late last year.
But the doctor, who works at a quarantine facility, said the government tally “cannot be trusted.”
The number of patients currently undergoing treatment is deliberately being reduced in an effort to show the Xi government’s success in combatting the epidemic, he said.
