I'm not saying this isn't true but it's a Tabloid Newspaper.

The DailyMail UK is similar to the National Enquirer here that gives firsthand interviews with people who've met Aliens up close and personal.

Let's find something concrete though I wouldn't put anything past the Chinese Government when it comes to fudging numbers.

Can you provide a link to this? From the outside, everything we read on CNN feels like an editorial.

There has to exist a neutral but reliable newspaper in the US, somewhere.

Getting "reliable" information from China really can't be done. All sources in china are the equivalent to CNN/NBC.
I prefer tat the number of deaths in China is several times what they mentioned.

Closed dictatorship leaders are paranoid about the information that gets disseminated. Have to convince their people and the world that their shithole country is not a shithole.

It's not that they aren't smart. The WHO means well and that's all that counts to the Dems.

So what the policy failed? It just didn't work this time.

So what all of the money was stolen from the program? That doesn't mean the program wasn't good just that it was administered by the wrong people.

So what the program didn't achieve it's goals and didn't help the targeted? We will get it done next time and increase funding to make sure any soft spots that occurred previously will be reinforced.

These are the sad tropes of the Democrats and why they will continue to support socialism even though there is incontrovertible evidence that it is a failed policy.

It's interesting reading this from the outside. I live in the UK.
Even though this forum chat is about China, it seems to be that we are heading towards a Republican vs Democrat argument - again. I say it's interesting, as this seems to be happening on a lot of different chats and forums.
Let's keep to the topic?

Wow.

A murdering dictatorship disappeared someone. I'm so surprised. I was just as surprised to see the sun rise in the east this morning as I had my first cup of coffee.

What a day of surprises!!

That is some serious claim in the article - but certainly not a well known source. Curious to see if any other news outlets provide additional clarity.

On a side note - I have a good friend in Shanghai that I communicate regularly with on WeChat. Today, my WeChat account was cancelled by China without notice. I subsequently received an email stating that in order to restore access, I would need to login from a Chinese phone number within the PRC.

So yeah.....nothing to see here folks - please move along.

I hope you anonymized your IP. You might be getting a knock at your door soon from some Chinese nationals.

You do not turn off the main road into driveways to people's houses unless you specifically know them...or have an invite.

"China has concealed the extent of the coronavirus outbreak in its country, under-reporting both total cases and deaths it’s suffered from the disease, the U.S. intelligence community concluded in a classified report to the White House, according to three U.S. officials."

In other breaking news it has been confirmed that the sky is blue. Yes the sky is blue according to 3 anonymous sources.
