Update (1200ET): More surprisingly frank reports from the Chinese press have been circulating on Saturday courtesy of Caixin, a Beijing-based financial and business news organization.

Among other things, TV reports claimed shortages of essential medical supplies have persisted into Saturday, stoking public anger over the death of Dr. Li, the first bonafide martyr of the 2019-2020 nCoV outbreak.

The station offered more grim updates on the rounding up of all infected patients in Wuhan.

Other reports claim that government forces are also rounding up those who are merely suspected of being exposed.

As one twitter sleuth asks: Would they be going to all this trouble for less than 800 dead across a country of 1.4 billion? So far, reports of these violent roundups have been confined to Wuhan. How long until they start rounding up party members in Shanghai, or Beijing?

Mandatory home and temperature checks were only the beginning. How long until millions are forcibly confined?
