China has concealed the extent of the coronavirus outbreak in its country, under-reporting both total cases and deaths it’s suffered from the disease, the U.S. intelligence community concluded in a classified report to the White House, according to three U.S. officials.
The officials asked not to be identified because the report is secret and declined to detail its contents. But the thrust, they said, is that China’s public reporting on cases and deaths is intentionally incomplete. Two of the officials said the report concludes that China’s numbers are fake.
The article goes on to state the following:
The report was received by the White House last week, one of the officials said.
Bloomberg noted that, despite the virus beginning in China in late 2019, they have only reported about 82,000 cases and 3,300 deaths.
In comparison, the virus only began to heavily hit the U.S. within the past 30 days, and there are already over 191,000 reported cases and 4,100 deaths.
“Stacks of thousands of urns outside funeral homes in Hubei province have driven public doubt in Beijing’s reporting,” Bloomberg wrote.
Dr. Deborah Birx said at a White House briefing on Tuesday that the rest of the world had first made their assumptions about the nature of the virus based on China’s public reporting. “Because I think probably we were missing a significant amount of the data, now that what we see happened to Italy and see what happened to Spain,” she said.
Xi’s CCP has a history of oppression & suppression. Now, this worldwide pandemic has been exacerbated because of CCP’s unfathomable actions to conceal the outbreak & craft false narratives of healing as the world suffers. The US must hold them accountable. https://t.co/Pu7QXFaEZd

Trump and admin officials have been careful lately to not publicly upset China, and Trump yesterday mentioned “we had a great conversation” with Xi the other day. White House spokespeople declined to comment for this story about China faking its coronavirus numbers.
