TL;DR – Death numbers in China are likely to be 10x official number
- China has been saying that there is only 2,600~ deaths in Wuhan, the most infected place on earth.
…Wuhan funeral homes have returned 3,500 urns a day since March 23. That would imply a death toll in Wuhan of about 42,000 — or 16 times the official number. Another widely shared calculation from Radio Free Asia, based on Wuhan’s 84 furnaces running nonstop and each cremation taking an hour, put the death toll at 46,800.
U.S. intelligence agencies have reportedly concluded that China’s official numbers are much lower than reality.
Now those who are slightly more intelligent than paint chip eaters would think, well, people die out of “natural” or other causes, right? Well yes, but NOT this fucking many.
- According to Wuhan Census and Statistics Department, Wuhan on average has 4,100 deaths per month in 2018
So that’s way more than 10x official number (42k/46k vs 4.1k) for you – and counting. So yeah if you think New York being the next Wuhan is not that bad, maybe think again.
