China is winning its “people’s war” against the coronavirus. That’s the message being sent by Chinese leaders and diplomats and amplified by the Communist Party-controlled press. A central part of the narrative is that Wuhan, the onetime center of the outbreak and the site of a recent visit from Chinese leader Xi Jinping, has stopped transmission in its tracks.
But Wuhan’s near-zero count is being called into question by independent reporting and received with suspicion from experts. It underscores wider issues across China. The country’s overall coronavirus numbers have been met with some skepticism since the first signs of crisis.
Public health experts also note that China does not include confirmed asymptomatic cases in its figures — a potential blind spot. These gaps are particularly worrying because as of Wednesday, tens of millions of residents of Hubei province will be able to move around for the first time in months.
“To show the outside world how effective the Chinese approach is and how it can provide a viable alternative to Western approaches.
What do you think about the Chinese announcement about the victory over coronavirus?
I believe that is the overstatement. I believe China will have another wave of corona virus.
They don’t test asymptomatic cases which may become systematic cases later.
They only give test to the people with clear symptoms and don’t test with others who may potentially infected but not having symptoms. Now they can freely move around spreading virus. It can cause the second wave of virus soon.
Thats why I don’t completely believe their victory statement over the virus. They should continue to be cautious about the second wave of corona virus.
