Wuhan, CHINA? Are they really so desperate to prove they have no more infections they won't even test for it anymore.

Yeah, that makes me totally confident in them.
Yes and this workers paradise of Bernie’s apparently doesn’t include health care coverage for their workers either.

Just shows we can't trust any numbers given to us. We can't make any predictions nor trust any predictions because any prediction made is based off of false statistics and false numbers. The US is just as bad reporting false numbers. I don't know why governments across the globe can't just be straight forward with us. :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

This is an interim measure that China has to take in order to respond to the current epidemic, referring to the practice of many countries. China is willing to maintain close communication with all parties and do a good job of personnel exchanges between China and foreign countries in the current situation. The Chinese side will adjust the above measures according to the epidemic situation and make a separate announcement.

Urns in Wuhan far exceed death toll, raising more questions about China’s tally
The reliability of China’s coronavirus numbers is under question once again in view of the staggering amount of urns being distributed out in Wuhan.

According to official Chinese government data, 50,006 people were infected with the Covid-19 virus in Wuhan with 2,535 dying from the disease.

However, Chinese investigative outlet Caixin reports that when mortuaries opened back up this week in the Hubei capital, people had to wait in line for as long as five hours to receive the remains of their loved ones lost during the epidemic.
