This might turn out as a piece of shocking news for the entire world, but a recent revelation of a local doctor from Wuhan, by a Japanese news agency Kyodo News, reveals that China’s recently announced report, on Thursday, about ‘zero new cases’ of Coronavirus, is not true.

Kyodo News conducted an interview with a local doctor who told that the numbers of infected patients, in Wuhan, were manipulated.

The doctor told that many ‘symptomatic’ patients were released from quarantine very early, way before the competition of all tests, which were suspended.

Adding further, he also said that the health authorities’ claim of ‘no new cases’ of coronavirus in Wuhan, lately, is not valid. And that it tried to make things normal about the spread of the pandemic in China, but in reality it’s not the situation. People are infected still and many of them have been released in public, being unrecovered.

The figures provided by the government “cannot be trusted," he said.

According to the doctor, whose job was to determine the individuals who were discharged from a hospital, the number of Covid 19 patients in Wuhan was manipulated due to President Xi Jinping’s visit to Wuhan last week. And it was done to show the success of the government against the pandemic as opposed to the rest of the nations that are challenged with the disease’s fast increasing community transmission.

The doctor, who is in his 40s, also told Kyodo news, that the actual guidelines from the National Health Commission, in China, clearly stated that all the patients must be tested negative twice along with clearance for pneumonia by computerized tomography, before being discharged. But all these guidelines were ignored.

For those not aware, Wuhan is the origin place of Coronavirus from where it all started in late December, last year.

As of now, as per the report of the National Health Commission, around 58,000 patients have already been released into open from the hospitals in Hubei.

Global Covid 19 cases on the rise

Current data from the live map developed by JHU (John Hopkins University) puts the global figure at around 311,988, with 13,407 deaths. 93,790 people have recovered so far. (at the time of writing this article)
