The news coming out of China disturbs millions of Americans.
Chinese government officials covered up the outbreak originating from a Wuhan laboratory and published fake numbers about the number of cases and deaths in China.
Now Dr. Fauci made a confession about China that had Fox News hosts at a loss for words.
For weeks China claimed just 80,000 infections and just over 3,000 deaths.
Few believed those numbers.
China recently “updated” their numbers and now claim there were over 4,600 deaths.
Experts and skeptical government officials scoffed at those numbers.
Dr. Anthony Fauci is among them.
During a recent interview on Fox News Dr. Fauci declared he had no confidence in the data out of China.
“I think any of us who have been dealing with this now for the last few months don’t feel confident at all that we have all of the data of the originally infected individuals, how long there were people in the circulation, or even now, how many deaths there really are in China,” Dr. Fauci began.
“That number is really rather a low number. That number surprises me that that number is so low. But then again, you know, it is what it is. It’s behind us. Let’s move ahead and address our own problem,” Dr. Fauci concluded.
In recent weeks reports also emerged out of Wuhan that witnesses saw between 40,000 and 45,000 urns at Chinese crematoriums where the government burned the bodies of individuals that succumbed to the virus.
There were also disturbing stories that the Chinese government even burned victims alive.
Vice director of the Wuhan Institute of Virology – where U.S. intelligence believes the virus originated – Yuan Zhiming denied any responsibility.
“As people who carry out viral study, we clearly know what kind of research is going on in the institute and how the institute manages viruses and samples. As we said early on, there is no way this virus came from us,” Yuan stated.
“We have a strict regulatory regime and code of conduct of research, so we are confident,” Yuan added.
Americans dismissed the denial as propaganda and fake news.
China’s lying about the initial outbreak – they initially claimed there was no evidence of human to human transmission – and their fake death tally eliminated any benefit of the doubt on official Chinese claims about the origins of the virus.
The initial origin story that the virus jumped from bats to humans in Wuhan wet markets collapses every day.
Many critics wonder why if this was the case the Chinese governments reopened the wet markets and restricted research into the origins of the coronavirus.
The facts on the ground do not square with the official story coming out of China.
And like Dr. Fauci stated, it is impossible for Americans to have any confidence that China is telling the truth.
