- The U.S. does “not have high confidence in the information coming out of China” regarding the count of coronavirus cases, a senior administration official told CNBC.
- After several days of reporting a slowing number of new confirmed cases, Chinese officials said on Thursday there was more than 15,000 additional cases, with a majority of increase coming from a change in how the numbers were categorized.
- There has been skepticism among researchers that the official numbers reflect how contagious the virus truly is.
