China is suspected of having downplayed her balance sheet. “Many observers wonder about the lack of transparency and the veracity of the assessment given by the Chinese authorities. Officially, there are in China 3,311 deaths linked to Covid-19, mainly in this city of Wuhan, the epicenter of the epidemic “, explains journalist Arnauld Miguet live from Wuhan, the Chinese focus of the epidemic.
“But the photos circulating on social networks of trucks bringing thousands of ballot boxes, 6,500 ballot boxes in one of the eight crematoriums in Wuhan city, leave many people skeptical that the authorities could have under- estimate the number of deaths. And then there are these families queuing to pick up the urns of their loved ones, who are allowed to come out of their confinement. It is probably not until April 8, when the city is liberated , that we may know whether or not these figures have been underestimated “, concludes the journalist.
