Chinese authorities did not believe in a sharp increase in coronavirus cases and stopped publishing data

(ORDO NEWS) — Zhejiang, a major industrial province in China, has been reporting about a million new COVID-19 infections daily, and that number is expected to double in the coming days.

And against this background, the National Health Commission of China stopped providing daily data on the incidence, doubting the reliability of the data.

The commission stopped publishing daily data on the incidence of coronavirus, calling into question the reliability of information about a sharp increase in cases of infection.

Now the information is published by the China Center for Disease Control and Prevention for reference and research purposes, but the frequency of such reports is not specified.

Reuters notes that prior to the suspension of the publication of daily data on the coronavirus, the commission did not release information on deaths from COVID-19 for four days.
