COVID has continued to spread and expand in China. On March 29, Beijing reported 8,825 cases (1,629 confirmed infection cases and 7,196 asymptomatic cases) . Shanghai had 5,982 cases (326 confirmed infection cases and 5,656 asymptomatic cases), or 67.8 percent of total reported cases on that day. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is known for hiding COVID information, so the actual infection count is unknown.
A YouTube channel, focusing on reporting uncensored news in China, reported several information items it received from its Chinese audience:
The Pandemic Situation:
A screenshot showed that a lab conducting COVID testing, after testing a little over half of the testing kits found 4,000 tubes positive (meaning, at least 4,000 people were infected with COVID). There are many other testing labs – indicating the infection number is much higher than the official number.
A person reported doctors stopped coming to a residence community to do COVID tests, since “almost everyone there is COVID positive already.”
A hiring posting showed Shanghai modular hospitals are looking to hire 30 janitors and will pay 1,500 yuan (US $236) per day. This is a relatively high salary since many people make only a few thousand yuan per month.
Officially Declared Rumors:
A citizen posted six COVID rumors that the Shanghai government rebutted in the past:
Authorities declared rumor that “Huating Hotel had a few hundred infected guests.” The truth that authorities didn’t tell people was that “a few thousand people were infected.”
Authorities declared there was a rumor that “a senior team at the Caoyang Residential Community has been group infected.” The truth that the authorities didn’t tell people was that “senior teams on the whole street (with multiple residential communities) have groups that have been infected.”
Authorities declared there was a rumor that “Shanghai is building modular hospitals.” The truth that authorities didn’t tell people was “Shanghai has completed building modular hospitals.”
Authorities declared their was a rumor that “Shanghai Jiao Tong University (Xuhui Campus) reported several hundred cases.” The truth that the authorities didn’t tell people was “Shanghai Jiao Tong University (Minhang Campus) reported several hundred cases.”
Authorities declared there was a rumor that “Pudong reported 8,000 cases.” The truth that authorities didn’t tell people was “Pudong had much more than 8,000 cases.”
Authorities declared there was a rumor that “Shanghai will lock down the city.” The truth that authorities didn’t tell people was “Shanghai will lock down half of the city (Pudong) first and then the other half (Puxi) later.”
A citizen shared two sad stories in his community: A teenage girl was tested positive but the government would not take her to quarantine and instead asked her to home-quarantine. She didn’t want to pass the virus to her parents, so she jumped off the building to kill herself. An elderly person ran out of medicine that he needed to take regularly. The gate guard would not let him get out to buy the medicine. Then the elderly person jumped off from the top of the building.
A woman posted that her father, near 70, was doing business at Jiangqiao Market in Shanghai. After the lockdown, he was driven out of his market’s dormitory and had to sleep under a bridge. He paid for a COVID test but was not given the test results, so he was stuck in Shanghai and couldn’t buy a ticket to leave (he needed proof of a negative COVID test ).
Jilin City, Jilin Province
A citizen was informed that Jilin’s situation was worse than Wuhan City in early 2000. Two deputy majors had been infected.
He was also informed that as early as March 20, the CCP’s Chemical Corps had entered Jilin City. His video showed multiple Chemical Corps’ special vehicles driving through the streets of the city.
