Default China hid extent of coronavirus outbreak per US Intel

I’ve been watching, and wondering, why China’s total reported cases of the virus has been more or less stationary for the last week in the low 80,000s. Good to know US intel has been addressing the issue. They’ve now concluded:

• “The Chinese government has deliberately underreported the total number of coronavirus cases and deaths in the country, the U.S. intelligence community told the White House, a new report says.

• Bloomberg, citing three U.S. officials, reported Wednesday that the intelligence community said in a classified report that China’s public tally of COVID-19 infections and deaths is purposefully incomplete.

• The secret report concludes that China’s numbers are fake, two of the officials said, Bloomberg reported. The White House received the report last week, according to the news outlet.”

While you may be surprised to learn this, it turns out some people are actually curious about what's going on outside The Villages, especially in this instance.

Because TV really is not in a bubble and exists on the same planet as other countries who are suffering because of actions of others.

Tucker Carlson had a most informative show last night. He pointed out the closest the intermediate horseshoe bats which carry the virus live, at their nearest, 900 KM away from Wuhan. The species do not inhabit the Wuhan area but were being used for experimentation in at least one of the two biological labs in Wuhan.

Also another Chinese doctor, Dr. Ai Fen, who said too much has 'been disappeared' according to Australian 60 Minutes..

I find it very interesting that over 21,000,000 cell phone accounts in China have been canceled since the outbreak began there.

I would imagine every government is doing some creative counting.
Some are just more creative than others!

Maybe so to some extent, but a totally false equivalence to compare Communist China's ability to lie / cheat / steal vs that of USA.

Not saying you said that ... just making an observation.

Yes, I was born in a very “creative” Communist European country, where Stalin was the Virgin Mother, or I mean the Holy Father, until he wasn’t.

I wouldn’t trust any “information” coming from a Communist country ever. Their word for communication is our word for manipulation.

Who gives a crap? Emphasis should be on current and future efforts to stop it.

I give a crap because it will clue us in on the deceitful behavior we have suspected all along and provide an impetus to return to making our own “stuff” and not be reliant on anyone going forward.
