China unleashed this on the world. Geller Report published reports of the cover-up back in January.China is LYING: Locals in Wuhan say 42,000 people died, accounts of crematoria working 24/7
Back in January, Geller Report published accounts of on-scene citizens in China who reported accounts of 10,000 DEAD in Wuhan.
The media ignored coronavirus in January. While President Trump was instituting travel restrictions to and from China, Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and NY’s Bill de Blasio urged Americans to ignore the “fearmongering” and “xenophobia” and co-mingle at events like the Chinese Lunar parades. Nancy Pelosi, touring San Fran’s Chinatown on Feb. 24, said, “We do want to say to people, come to Chinatown, here we are … come join us.” That was a full month after reports were coming out of China of mass death.
Geller Report was blocked on Facebook and designated fake news by “fact-checking sites” Factcheck.org and PolitiFact because of our reporting on Coronavirus (a designation that still stands). GR was right. But facts are irrelevant.
Still, media and social media channels continue to read like state-run Chinese propaganda organs.
There were accounts of crematoria working 24/7 during the worst of the outbreak.
China knew. And China allowed this to be unleashed on the world.

In February, the Express reported: Coronavirus news: Weird smoke hangs over Wuhan, is China BURNING 1000s of infected bodies?
AN UNEXPLAINED fog hanging over the coronavirus city of Wuhan is being blamed on Chinese authorities burning thousands of infected corpses.
The National Health Commission in China has ordered all coronavirus fatalities to be cremated, with burials and funerals banned, to prevent to spread of disease.
One woman commented on social media: “Everyone knows the seriousness, but at this time, I can only express it here! The crematoriums of major funeral homes in Wuhan currently working 24 hours! Before, it was only half a day to open the stove! Even in special circumstances, it is only a full day shift!”
Mary Langan tweeted: “The bodies are piling up faster than they can cremate. This is the fog of Wuhan.”
Jim Phillippi added: “This fog is due to seven crematoriums running most of the day all days if the week. This is Wuhan.”

She explained “When you talk about could we have known something different, you know, I think all of us — I mean I was overseas when this happened, in Africa, and I think when you look at the China data originally, and you said, ‘Oh well, there’s 80 million people, or 20 million people in Wuhan and 80 million people in Hubei,’ and they come up with the number of 50,000, you start thinking of this more like SARS than you do this kind of global pandemic.” Later: “I think the medical community interpreted the Chinese data as this was serious but smaller than anyone expected, because I think probably we were missing a significant amount of the data” (Washington Examiner). From Business Insider: 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. The officials asked not to be identified because the report is secret, and they declined to detail its contents. But the thrust, they said, is that China’s public reporting on cases and deaths is intentionally incomplete. Two of the officials said the report concludes that China’s numbers are fake (Bloomberg). From Erielle Davidson: Always refreshing when mainstream media *breathlessly* reports what we all have known for weeks (Twitter). National Review has put together a timeline of China’s deception and includes this: What you have probably not heard is how emphatically, loudly, and repeatedly the Chinese government insisted human transmission was impossible, long after doctors in Wuhan had concluded human transmission was ongoing — and how the World Health Organization assented to that conclusion, despite the suspicions of other outside health experts (National Review). From Becket Adams: Democrats and members of the U.S. news media should be reconsidering their remarks defending and praising China amid the COVID-19 pandemic, especially now that those remarks are being highlighted by China’s aggressive and sophisticated propaganda machine (Washington Examiner).
UK Official: China Lying About Coronavirus Numbers
China Concealed Extent of Virus Outbreak, U.S. Intelligence Says
BY: Nick Wadhams and Jennifer Jacobs, Bloomberg, April 1, 2020:
Report submitted to White House on China’s under-count
U.S. has publicly reported more than twice as many cases
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.
The officials asked not to be identified because the report is secret, and they declined to detail its contents. But the thrust, they said, is that China’s public reporting on cases and deaths is intentionally incomplete. Two of the officials said the report concludes that China’s numbers are fake.
The report was received by the White House last week, one of the officials said.

The outbreak began in China’s Hubei province in late 2019, but the country has publicly reported only about 82,000 cases and 3,300 deaths, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. That compares to more than 189,000 cases and more than 4,000 deaths in the U.S., which has the largest publicly reported outbreak in the world.

U.S. President Donald Trump said Wednesday that China’s reported virus data appear to be on the “light side” but that he hadn’t received an intelligence report saying the country had concealed the extent of its outbreak.
“Their numbers seem to be a little bit on the light side, and I’m being nice when I say that,” he said at a daily coronavirus briefing at the White House.

Trump added that the U.S. and China were in constant communication and that Beijing would spend $250 billion to purchase American products. “We’d like to keep it, they’d like to keep it” he said of the U.S.-China trade deal.
Communications staff at the White House and the Chinese embassy in Washington didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.
“The reality is that we could have been better off if China had been more forthcoming,” Vice President Mike Pence said Wednesday on CNN. “What appears evident now is that long before the world learned in December that China was dealing with this, and maybe as much as a month earlier than that, that the outbreak was real in China.
While China eventually imposed a strict lockdown beyond those of less autocratic nations, there has been considerable skepticism toward China’s reported numbers, both outside and within the country. The Chinese government has repeatedly revised its methodology for counting cases, for weeks excluding people without symptoms entirely, and only on Tuesday added more than 1,500 asymptomatic cases to its total.
Stacks of thousands of urns outside funeral homes in Hubei province have driven public doubt in Beijing’s reporting.
Republican lawmakers in the U.S. have been particularly harsh about China’s role in the outbreak. Enhancing Beijing’s role in the pandemic could be politically helpful to Trump, who has sought to shift blame for the U.S. outbreak away from his administration’s delays in achieving widespread testing for the virus and mobilizing greater production of supplies such as face masks and hospital ventilators.
“The claim that the United States has more coronavirus deaths than China is false,” Senator Ben Sasse, a Nebraska Republican, said in a statement after Bloomberg News published its report. “Without commenting on any classified information, this much is painfully obvious: The Chinese Communist Party has lied, is lying, and will continue to lie about coronavirus to protect the regime.”
Deborah Birx, the State Department immunologist advising the White House on its response to the outbreak, said Tuesday that China’s public reporting influenced assumptions elsewhere in the world about the nature of the virus.

“The medical community made — interpreted the Chinese data as: This was serious, but smaller than anyone expected,” she said at a news conference on Tuesday. “Because I think probably we were missing a significant amount of the data, now that what we see happened to Italy and see what happened to Spain.”
The U.S. intelligence community’s conclusion is an attempt to divert attention from surging deaths in the U.S. and other Western countries, Hu Xijin, editor-in-chief of China’s state-run Global Times, said on his account on Chinese social media platform Weibo.
There was no way for serious data faking to occur in today’s China, especially for an incident that has drawn such widespread attention, Hu said. He said China managed to curtail the death toll in Hubei, the province where the virus first emerged late last year, by sending medical workers and equipment there from other parts of the country.
“To fake the casualty data, which departments will be deployed? Who will implement the plan?,” Hu said. “It will involve many different departments in many places to get the total numbers. If one of them is faking once, they have to fake it all the time. The risk of screwing up could be very high.”
China isn’t the only country with suspect public reporting. Western officials have pointed to Iran, Russia, Indonesia and especially North Korea, which has not reported a single case of the disease, as probable under-counts. Others including Saudi Arabia and Egypt may also be playing down their numbers.
U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo has publicly urged China and other nations to be transparent about their outbreaks. He has repeatedly accused China of covering up the extent of the problem and being slow to share information, especially in the weeks after the virus first emerged, and blocking offers of help from American experts.
“This data set matters,” he said at a news conference in Washington on Tuesday. The development of medical therapies and public-health measures to combat the virus “so that we can save lives depends on the ability to have confidence and information about what has actually transpired,” he said.
“I would urge every nation: Do your best to collect the data. Do your best to share that information,” he said. “We’re doing that.”
