Exiled Chinese Billionaire: Millions Infected, More than 100,000 Dead in Coronavirus Pandemic
Exiled Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui, citing leaked information out of the coronavirus epicenter of Wuhan, China, says the death toll is now over 100,000, as Chinese officials burn mountains of bodies to conceal the true scope of a burgeoning global plague.
As with everything else under the control of the least opaque totalitarian regime in the world, finding the truth about the ongoing novel coronavirus outbreak in China has been an exercise in a looking glass, sifting leaked information from sources who subsequently disappear, factoring the scale of Chinese response and realizing implicitly that Beijing is once again lying about an unfolding catastrophe inside their nation.
Exiled Chinese national and billionaire investor Guo Wengui says vehemently that the Beijing government is lying to the world and that the true numbers in the outbreak according to sources in Wuhan paint a picture of a pandemic that has already raced beyond China’s abilities to contain or even to coverup.
In a video interview February 9th, Wengui told reporters that the death toll had already surpassed 50,000 with 1-million or more confirmed cases of the disease and body disposal operations dwarfing actual medical response as Chinese leaders race to eliminate evidence of the scale of the outbreak.
As many have believed and feared, Wengui confirms that rapidly built hospital facilities in Wuhan and elsewhere in Hubei province are actually disposal facilities where few patients are even treated for the illness, but are instead warehoused in a viral containment environment until they either recover or die, to be taken to one of 49 mass crematory incinerators that are working 24-hours a day to destroy infected bodies.
In broken English, Wengui described the leaked statistics from Wuhan alone, 17 days after the opening of the cremation operation.
“The number of crematories (ovens) in Wuhan totally, is 49. 24-hours a day work, they burn the death of the body. Every day is 1,200. And they work more than 17 days.”
Adding to the carnage and the inhumanity of Beijing’s handling of the crisis, a flawed coronavirus test that was already too expensive to produce and purchase in adequate numbers and has now proven unable to reliably detect the virus even in patients who eventually die from the coronavirus infection. Emergency health workers and deployed People’s Liberation Army quarantine patrols are now relying on reports from family members and friends about symptomatic patients who in the vast majority of cases are no longer even tested to confirm the presence of the disease before being hauled away forcibly to overwhelmed mass quarantine facilities where according to previous reports, many are simply executed and burned.
China’s infamous social scoring system is now playing the central role in deciding who lives, who goes to a hospital, who gets even rudimentary medical care and who is simply cast aside to the winds of fate against a disease that is killing 1 of every 6 people infected.
Bullets are cheaper than hospital beds.”
–Fang Bin, Chinese citizen journalist, missing since February 9.
For a brutal regime that has long demanded ideological conformity and absolute compliance from its citizenry, coronavirus infection status has become the new social crime, with Beijing encouraging citizens to inform on their own infected family members, friends and business associates under threat of being declared an enemy of the state for withholding information.
Case in point: A widening number of citizen journalists who have succeeded in breaking the veil of silence about the coronavirus pandemic even briefly before mysteriously disappearing from online contact, never to be heard from again. Including Fang Bin, a Wuhan clothing merchant who became an outspoken source of independent information about the pandemic, only to fall conspicuously silent on February 9. No more video messages, emails or texts.
One of his final transmissions contained words that take on an amplified sense of ironic tragedy against his own apparent demise and the greater context of a Chinese disaster.
“Zǐdàn bǐ yīyuàn de bìngchuáng piányí,” Fang Bin said, referencing the executions of symptomatic patients deemed nonessential and unworthy of medical assistance.
“Bullets are cheaper than hospital beds.”
