The UK prime minister is reportedly furious with Beijing for covering up the true size of the coronavirus pandemic in China. The Daily Mail reported on Sunday that "senior Downing Street officials said the Communist state now faces a ‘reckoning’ over its handling of the outbreak and risks becoming a 'pariah state.'" An unnamed senior government official told the DM, "The only priority now is to deal with the crisis, but everybody knows that there has to be a reckoning when all this is over." The paper claims that "Johnson has been warned by scientific advisers that China's officially declared statistics on the number of cases of coronavirus could be 'downplayed by a factor of 15 to 40 times."
We can be sure that the Chinese government is lying. Considering the numbers coming out of the US, Italy, and Spain, it would be logical for China to have over one million infected cases. The fact that the Chinese closed down their recently opened cinemas points to a short-term spike in infections there. Of course, officially China is totally cool and everything is under control.
