China engaging in massive cover-up of Coronavirus deaths while the world edges closer to plague-like catastrophe

As the world remains on edge and concerns over the rapidly spreading Coronavirus grow, many remember what happened the last time an incurable illness escaped from Communist China: The regime lied for weeks about just how bad it was.

That was 2003, and the epidemic virus was identified as SARS. The regime covered up the severity of it because it did not want to cause panic and instability within Chinese borders.

Now, it appears leaders in Beijing are following a similar script with Coronavirus.

‘Officially,’ as of Saturday morning, there were 1,400 virus infections and deaths. However, as Zero Hedge reports, China is only pretending to have learned its lesson from the SARS public relations disaster.

This time around it appears as though the government is being more transparent after President Xi Jinping publicly warned that the country faces a “grave situation” and that the deadly Coronavirus is spreading after he held a special government meeting over the Lunar New Year public holiday.

Zero Hedge noted further:

After staying largely silent in public about the outbreak since it first emerged in central China last month, Xi on Saturday convened a special meeting of the seven-member Politburo Standing Committee, calling for a more centralized response to the epidemic and asserting personal responsibility in addressing the crisis.

“When an epidemic breaks out, a command is issued. It is our responsibility to prevent and control it,” Xi said, according to the state-run Xinhua News Agency.

He also reportedly called for the new high-level committee to “address concerns within and outside the country,” an indirect reference to mounting international fears about the epidemic. “We definitely can win the battle to contain the epidemic,” he pledged.

Maybe…and maybe not.

Earlier reports noted that Chinese authorities have put 56 million people on lockdown quarantine, but the virus has killed at least 41 people while infecting more than 1,400 around the country.

‘Clearly, the hospitals are overwhelmed’
