US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — A doctor who wishes to remain anonymous told Kyodo News that the Chinese authorities are providing false data on coronavirus. He said that most patients with COVID-19 symptoms are released without completing follow-up testing.
All this is done in order to show the world the victory over the epidemic.
The doctor has no doubt that China is expecting a second wave of coronavirus.
Chinese authorities have introduced strict quarantine measures in the country. This allowed to muffle the epidemic. So, on Thursday no new case of infection with COVID-19 was recorded. Therefore, there was talk of China’s victory over the terrible virus.
In fact, such optimistic forecasts may be too hasty. In addition, the anonymous doctor is sure that the officially submitted statistics should not be believed, since the number of infected people who are in hospitals is significantly underestimated.
Many patients with symptoms of pneumonia were released home before Xi Jinping’s visit. Although according to the approved rules, people should be discharged only after a negative test for coronavirus twice, as well as checks on a tomograph.
As the doctor noted, the diagnosis of infection has also become significantly weaker. Anonymous believes that the weakening of therapeutic and preventive measures will creep out for the country, leading to a new stage of the outbreak of COVID-19.
