BREAKING: U.S. Intelligence Confirms China Lied About Coronavirus Cases And Deaths
- 119K Views
According to Bloomberg, three United States intelligence officials familiar with a classified report sent to the White House last week, claim that it acknowledged China’s severe mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic, noting inaccuracies in both the total deaths the country reported, and the total number of individuals infected.
The Chinese government lied about the coronavirus on a massive scale while trying to place blame on the United States military for the spread of the virus at the same time. Now, as many have already predicted, China was confirmed by the intelligence community to have severely under-reported their numbers regarding the virus.
Check out what Bloomberg reported below:
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 they 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.
Just a short time after China decided to ban a number of reporters from entering the country, they began reporting no new cases of the coronavirus, but United States officials have ultimately denied the possibility of this in the new report.
When looking at the United States’ 200,000+ cases of the virus in comparison to China’s 82,200 publicly reported cases, it shows how dangerously irresponsible the Chinese government’s lies have been to the entire world.
Earlier this month, China launched a massive disinformation campaign trying to avoid the blame for the coronavirus and place it onto the United States. The attack was started by Chinese official Lijian Zhao, the deputy director of China’s Foreign Ministry Information Department, who went on a tirade accusing the United States of starting the entire pandemic on Twitter.
Among some of the many outlandish claims, he alleged that Robert Redfield of the Centers For Disease Control was arrested for the pandemic (he wasn’t), along with suggesting that the U.S military played a role in introducing the coronavirus into Wuhan, China.
President Trump’s State Department summoned Chinese Ambassador Cui Tiankai on March 13th, issuing a “very stern representation of the facts,” in response to the statements made from the Chinese official.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also called Chinese official Yang Jiechi, to make sure China is aware that the United States will not let them continue to lie.
The recent reprimands from the United States government have made it very clear that Chinese propaganda will not be tolerated, in what will be a pivotal moment for the entire nation.
