Richmond, V.A. – According to three officials, China has concealed the outbreak extent of Coronavirus in the country. The initial report comes from Bloomberg News which indicates the report was given to the White House last week. Many officials had speculated that China was hiding details about the outbreak. Especially given the country announced it was adding approximately 1500 asymptomatic individuals to their records earlier this week.
The Wall Street Journal had reported earlier that asymptomatic individuals were kept off the records. Many have speculated that China would have a significantly larger portion of cases given their population. If the majority of cases withheld were asymptomatic or minor cases, this would also alter the assumed death toll of the virus.
This is good news for the US and other countries as they enter into the critical moments of the battle against the Coronavirus. The US has taken additional measures mirroring China in the attempt to stop the spread of the virus. Many states have announced stay measures to encourage people to stay at home. The US has over 190,000 cases of COVID-19 as of the time of this writing.
