China Claims COVID Rates Are Alarmingly Low

( )- State-run propaganda media and news outlets in China have begun trolling the United States over the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the country, claiming that the virus is spreading much less quickly in China. It comes as the new Omicron variant of the disease sweeps across the country, reportedly accounting for more than 73% of new cases and more than 90% of new cases in New Jersey and New York.

Articles published by the Xinhua News Agency, the official state-run press outlet in China, claim that report the low rates of COVID-19 in China, while other articles talk about how Omicron is seriously damaging the U.S. economy.

The outlet that publishes and distributes the articles is regularly accused by international news outlets of spreading misinformation on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party – and it seems that this could be just another instance of misinformation being published.

The outlet claims that there were only 182 new cases of COVID-19 last Monday – while the United States is reporting hundreds of thousands of new cases every single day. The U.S. hit a new daily record of over 400,000 recently.

How does that make any sense when China has a population of more than 1.4 billion?

It doesn’t.

The article also claimed that there were “no new suspected cases and new deaths from COVID-19” on that specific day.

Trump was right – China no longer respects the United States, and clearly we can’t trust their data.
