Around the world, doubts are growing about the responsibility that China has shown in regard to the COVID-19 pandemic.
As doctors and statisticians begins to compile and study data regarding this novel and deadly strain of coronavirus, the official story coming out of Beijing seems to be an outlier. When compared to the rest of the world, China’s numbers just don’t add up, especially for the nation where the outbreak began, before it even had a name.
And evidence continues to pile up this week, as a particularly morbid transactional analysis seems to indicate that China is covering something up.
As families in the central Chinese city began picking up the cremated ashes of those who have died from the virus this week, photos began circulating on social media and local media outlets showing vast numbers of urns at Wuhan funeral homes.
It’s not clear how many of the urns were filled.
Workers at several funeral parlors declined to provide any details to Bloomberg as to how many urns were waiting to be collected, saying they either did not know or were not authorized to share the number.
The photos surfaced after both the United States and Italy have reported significantly more cases and than China. Italy has reported just shy of three times the fatalities.
The news comes as some in the media have begun to question whether or not china could or should bear some economic responsibility for virus relief on a global scale.
