I have been following the COVID numbers game since March 2020 and am curious on how China has not experienced the pandemic on a large scale as other countries have.
I was looking at CDC website the other day (Nov. 29) and noticed that China was number 67 in ranking regarding coronavirus confirmations and deaths. China was showing 92,796 confirmations and 4,796 deaths.
The top five countries at last count are (numbers are rounded off and of course subject to change):
U.S. – 13.4 million confirmed, 266,895 deaths
India – 9.4 million confirmed, 137,139 deaths
Brazil – 6.4 million confirmed, 172,833 deaths
Russia – 2.3 million confirmed, 39,491 deaths
France – 2.3 million confirmed, 52,410 deaths
Now China has a rough population of 1.4 billion people, the United States has about 328 million people. Now compare COVID 13.4 million confirmed (U.S.) to 93,796 confirmed (China). Now, what’s wrong with this picture?
Is it just me that’s asking these questions, is nobody else paying attention as to why the national media is not asking these questions; perhaps China does have a magic pill.
