Asian Analyst Warns China Is Showing Signs Of Another Outbreak
China likes to make all sorts of claims about how they have beaten the Corona Virus and are somehow ready for business now. But that's only the official report, in reality, they have been covering up how bad things have become. As of right now, China is claiming they back to normal but Asian Analyst Gordon Chang claims this is likely another lie, and warns there are signs that China is having additional outbreaks.
During an interview with FOX News anchor Jon Scott, Scott asked Chang to give his take on China and whether we should believe them.
"JON SCOTT: Well it is not only China that’s facing backlash over its handling of the Coronavirus. The World Health Organization stands accused of helping Beijing cover up the true extent of the outbreak. In January, it said, ‘preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel Coronavirus identified in Wuhan. Several U.S. Senators are now calling for a top-down investigation into the organization’s handling of the pandemic as well as its ties to China. Here to talk about it the author of “The Coming Collapse Of China” Asia analyst and foreign affairs journalist Gordon Chang. Gordon, unbelievable, what’s happened here. That warning from the World Health Organization, presumably the group that should know how these things ought to be handled was completely wrong. This is one of the most contagious viruses we have seen in a time.
GORDON CHANG: That January 14th tweet, Jon, was really damaging because Chinese authorities knew about human-to-human transmissions in Wuhan about the second week of December. And that January 14th tweet lulled a lot of public health officials in the United States and around the world into not taking actions they otherwise would have adopted. So, China in a very meaningful way hindered the world from actually preventing this virus becoming the pandemic that it eventually became.
SCOTT: Officially China is saying that there are no new cases coming out of Wuhan. Should we believe them?
CHANG: I don’t think so, Jon. I think Wuhan has — the virus there has burned its way through the population. There are probably a few cases, not meaningful numbers. Why’s really of concern, though, is that this is probably jumped to other cities, especially those on the east, so for instance, Shanghai, Beijing, are probably experiencing a substantial number of cases that China’s not talking about. And the reason why we can suspect that is because in Shanghai, many of the tourist attractions have indeed been shut down in the last three or four days, after being reopened just a week before. So that’s a real indication that there’s a problem in the big cities."

China needs to get it's act together. We can't have a country like this threatening to extend this pandemic with their selfish wants for the econony to recover. The Chinese government is putting their people at risk as well as the people of the world by lying about their welfare. If this keeps up they will ensure that experience a second wave of this virus.
